Re: Update to F11 or new install?

You don't get to use the shiny new ext4 filesystem.  Some people may say
that is an upside, but ext4 does seem like a good idea for saving a bit
or wear and tear on your hard drive.

Euphamism for "someone may have scewed up a file, either you or the
people that wrote the upgrade logic.  By doing a clean install you get
to bury your (or our) sins."

Toss a coin.  It doesn't really matter.  I did 5 clean installs of F11
and 2 upgrades (one from F10, one from F9).  I didn't see any real
problems in either case.
