Gutsy ISO release from Dell? Should I upgrade anyway?

I've got a 1420N that is still running Feisty.  Does anyone know a) of 
any reason not to upgrade to Gutsy  and b) if there's any idea if/when 
Dell will release a Gutsy image of their own?

I've looked at the Ubuntu forums, Launchpad and Dell's wiki - there are 
a few things that seem minor, but I don't see too many people actually 
doing an upgrade so it's hard to know what to do.

I'm a bit nervous about upgrading because of the precedent set by the 
video driver crashes (that happen for 3D stuff) which happened to me 
right out of the box.
