Just curious enough to know what method do you use for upgrading fedora or do you really rely on a reinstall rather than upgrade?

I prefer a DVD upgrade!

I guess it depends on individual opinion, but I always do a Preupgrade, as I feel its the most hassle free upgrade mechanism. You can just go to the below link and choose your way of upgrading Fedora.

For an upgrade (not a new reinstallation) i prefer command line. Before:

  • Unistall proprietary video driver
  • Uninstall the biggest package groups (office, other language)
  • Uninstall kernels excluded that used
  • Backup of the personal data

In case of upgrade Fedora 15 --> Fedora 16

Wait ...

I do clean install on my desktop at home because I always trying stuff on it. On other equipment I do preupgrade. Other equipment includes: mom's desktop, wife's laptop, my laptop, my desktop at office.
