So since elementary is based on Ubuntu 16.04 would it be possible to turn it back into Ubuntu but keep all my data then upgrade to 17?

    Would it be possible?
    - yes
    Would it be worth the time spent?
    - no
    Would it be better to make a partition to dump data on then install ubuntu 17 then grab data back?
    - yes

    Whenever you do such thing it's always a good thing to make a backup just in case though.
    - yes

    Was that not a question?
    - yes
