Hey shallow - as I said, I only do security upgrades right away. If I were starting a new site, I'd start with 3.0, but I have not upgraded any sites and won't upgrade any until at least the first minor version update of WP.
If you have some plugins that really matter, I would set up my site in a sandbox, do the upgrade and see what happens. This is not hard to test.
