Set up from new or from backup?
With iOS5 just around the corner (YAY) I'm now finding myself watching the keynote and all those Youtube videos to remind myself of all the little things I've forgotten.
Now we will all obviously be backing our devices up before upgrading to iOS5 but what will do you when your device asks you what to do next...
... Setup as new so I can tweek all of those little settings one by one to make it perfect and get use to them?
... Restore from Backup where everything is as it was and just remember where to go to change the things I want/need to?
Personally i think I'll be setting the iPads up as new and the iPhones up from a backup (wirelessly I might add)
What will you be doing?

every update. seems crazy, i know, but i have been used to doing it so often during my jailbreaking days that it really is not a big deal for me
i have done the same thing as well during the iOS 5 betas
does it really need to be done? probably not, but peace of mind goes a long way for me
Up until now I've backed up everything to Google (such as cal and contacts) but with iCloud I've got to decide if I am going to keep doing this and have 2 backups or just stick with iCloud since it is automatic anyway.
What do/will you do?

Personally, I always do a "reset all settings" then backup in iTunes, upgrade the OS, then restore from backup.
I'm not an advocate of the "set up as new" every single time. That might change with the new iCloud situation though, but we'll see.
