I am not a heavy Linux sys admin but I have never had any luck with Linux updates like Fn to (Fn+1)

sooner or later something happens requiring a heavy research project!

Now I save all files I need and load Fedora (n+1) from DVD.

Sure I should have done a

rpmyumsxx -1234 /rtter /dodad/honky tonk blah blah -crunch

and then figure out why that didn't work!

Linux should NOT be a mountain of complexity for those who admire/worship complexity.

I have far more than enough complexity in programming subjects. 

Remember, we are defeating Vista and XP Prof and need to make things simple for newbies.

THEN maybe we'll have another 14,000 Munich computer switch to Linux!
