I don't even upgrade anymore.  I just keep two partitions (Logical
Volumes actually)--one for Fedora N and one for Fedora N+1.  I always
do a fresh install, formatting the partition from the older install.
This has the advantage of providing a backup in case the new Fedora
doesn't work so well.  Eventually, when updates to the new Fedora fix
the most annoying bugs, I switch to using it full time.

and it's a shame! it's not windows when we need to reinstall and reboot with every install.
or if it's know to be broken then remove the option to upgrade.
