2) Most inexperienced users won't have any desire to upgrade the distro anyways, as this was proven true when half the country refused to change from Windows 98 to Windows XP.

I think, you missed 2 points with this claim.
Firstly, there was no more DOS. Everyone knowing and loving DOS would refuse changing to XP
Secondly, you have to _pay_ for the upgrade.

In my opinion those two points are really decisive and are not even worthy considering when upgrading *ubuntu.

On the other hand: I've read somewhere that there was another Software called "Windows ME" which was released earlier... :D
