Hello everyone.
I would like to ask you a question, it may sound stupid .
What do you advise me:
- i would like to download the beta release and install it on my laptop
Now does it worth it ? i mean will it be the same as the final release if i update constantly ?
or the os will grow to much ?
Please let me know.
i would like to get rid os my Vista os ASAP !!!
Thank you !

If you want to do a network install you can go ahead and do that now, most days rawhide installs fine in the last few weeks, but be warned its not a 'sure thing' for your hardware. Some machines it won't install on every day. You should not start with the Beta unless you're very comfortable working with Fedora rawhide because there are a number of critical bugs that you will get stuck on -- they are fixed but the Beta install gives you some big bugs you have to get updated right away.

Either do network, or wait for the preview as suggested.

What's the point of waiting for the preview ( the preview is just another snapshot of Rawhide !!) .
