Re: Curious About Updating.....
To Eddie G.O'Connor Jr-I:I'm having far fewer problems with F17 than I had with F15. I've done a fresh install, of which I am a great fan in general anyway. I tinker quite a lot with my machine, but am not very skilled, so I am sure I f**k up quite a few things in every version. When I do a clean install all that s**t is gone. :) I don't know about your laptop; I don't have one like that. :) I do know that many people have problems with fresh installs once a new version comes out - the same is gonna happen with F18. I used to wait about a month before upgrading (with a fresh DVD install). The drawback of this is that the first yum update takes forever; the advantage is that most of the initial bugs and problems have been found and fixed. Here's the consideration you need to make, and you will be able to reach your own conclusion: Fedora 15 is no longer supported; and no longer updated (I assume Fedora sticks with it's N+2 expiration date). If everything runs fine on your machine, there's no real reason to upgrade; it will continue to run fine. There are people who still happily run Win2000, and I've even seen a Win98 machine recently. As long as it keeps doing what you want it to do, why change? However, development does go on, and imho the user experience of F17 is once again better, smoother, easier, than of F16 - and 15. What do you want from your machine? Something that does what it's always done? Or something that looks a tad better, works a tad smoother, can do a tad more... To upgrade or not to upgrade, that's your question.
