    If you are scared, make a backup of your database and your whole WordPress installation folder and you'll be able to revert all changes in case something goes wrong.
    Anyway, the update should be pretty smooth. Keep in mind that you'll have to test all the plugins you've installed. Some of them might not work with 2.8 yet. Just give it a try.
