Re: WHY I WANT TO STOP USING FEDORA!!!




Hi,

true that is a little bit annoying to re-install the system every 6 months, but ...

Why you do it ? What is your special need that makes you MUST have the new version ?
What use do you make of your Fedora system ?

For my laptop I like to have the newest releases, of course. Added functionality ? not always but sometimes. More good looking ? rarely

My server: I only change stuff when I have to!

Other thing: I have been doing updates and upgrades to my laptop OS using preupgrade. Little intervention and automatic process. Never had a problem, so far.
You want a better method to upgrade a system ? Windows ? Xp to Vista ? 2000 to 2007 ? Hummm.... don't think so

Hi All;

Thank God that the shouting has started early.

To me, it usually signifies a successful version release.

Within only 10 weeks of Fedora 10's release we once again have people
debating Fedora philosophy, ranting about basic components, and trolling
with CAPITALS, using sarcasm, and double (??) question marks.

This thread is up to 60 responses so far. Almost every familiar name on
the list is hard put not to add their two cents.

As a user of Fedora since FC2, I have come to learn that when this
starts on the mailing list it usually means there are very few real
problems to deal with.  Yet with 4 months to go before the Fedora 11
scheduled release, list participants feel the need to communicate with
each other.  So, let the games begin; let's have some verbal fun.
