Many of the comments on the Permalinks issue / problem faced when upgrading to 2.0 seem to be YMMV on your provider. But we learn that after the fact.
Perhaps aggregating a list of solutions / workarounds by host would be beneficial and good to have in hand here before attempting an upgrade.
Does anyone have experience upgrading to 2.0 on Hosting Matters? And if so, how did you manage the .htaccess and permalink issues?
