Across versions, I do a full install where I leave the data partition intact. This has made upgrading almost painless and without any major backups.

And configure software again, and again... ?

Not exactly. I said I do it without "major" backups. The home folder is the only backup that I take. Firefox and Thunderbird settings are the only restores that I do. When I went from 5 to 6, using the old home folder kind off hosed my new Gnome profile, so I don't do that any more. Rest of the stuff in my home are symlinks to /data anyways.
