1 - you are bringing in an issue separate from the OP

2 - many of us have had no problems updating from release to release but
yes, a clean install is clearly easier for the less than technically
inclined. I think Ubuntu is intended to be the release for the
non-inclined/less technical users.

3 - Fedora is not intended to replace Windows on anything and I have yet
to see that to be a stated goal for Fedora. While Fedora tries to make
things simpler, it's not a primary objective. 

I think you need to review the 'overview' page for Fedora...


The primary objective...the first sentence. "Fedora is all about freedom
and rapid innovation."

Rapid innovation, not making a platform to easily create Windows
