At least the backups you did right. Did you ever hear about test setups?
Migration has to be planned? Nah, that's for wimps...

I updated a 7500-page, 180-BE-user site to 4.0RC2 (scary, eh?) and had next
to *no* trouble, aside from a small issue with tt_news.

Talking about continuity: did you find a system that was as
backwards-compatible as TYPO3? I mean, if extension authors don't follow
the coding guidelines and their extensions break because symlinks are gone
now - is that the fault of TYPO3?
