But I thought that is what the legacy project was for.  I used FC1 until
last summer when I was between projects.  I will stay with FC4 until I
know I can get a reasonably safe install and the applications I use on a
daily basis are in the repositories.


Yes, I think you're right, that is what the legacy project is there for.

Well the yum update seemed to have a whole lot of items for FC4, like 500 and one upgraded Open Office to version 2.0. It is likely that some new thing like a modified Firefox comes over the Internet from Firefox direct. And it's no problem at all.

And my idea of old is sure a longer period than the one used by Fedora. I will keep FC4 for several years. There is no reason not to since it's doing what I want just fine after initial bugs were yummed out.
