Yeah... I've done that, Ubuntu's Upgrade system is not failproof. The simplest way is to just mount your home directory on a separate partition, and then just reinstall any time you do a major update (I tend to skip every other release, just cuz I'm too lazy to do an upgrade every 6 months) But, that being said, you can change the notification system so that a senior citizen would not ever have to mess with that. Even outdated Ubuntu is more user-friendly than XP for a non-proficient user in my mind.
