I don't think the numbers necessarily speak to the difficulty in
upgrading (or switching).  There are
some people who won't switch until absolutely forced, and others who
have new requirements
or are just more liberal in making a change.

I personally do not really see a lot of bad feedback about 2.2 to 2.4
migration. Maybe there would be a good perspective from e.g. one of
the debian maintainers, because their users in some way would have
been "forcibly" dragged though it to stay current on the OS.
