i noticed this question was asked earlier on but there wasn't a clear answer.
from what i understand is that fc2 probably will not offer the option to upgrade from fc1 to fc2...
after running fc1 for some time now it seems somewhat of a major drag having to reinstall every app i installed over the last year or so.
especially with the planned short release cycles of fedora.
i've been playing with redhat for a few years now but always had a windows install as primary OS and redhat as a play ground so reinstalling it wasn't a big thing.
now since fc1 i sort of made windows the fallback os for just playing games i can't get to run in wine or winex.
for example i also have my pc at work running fc1 and there is probably some stuff i'm going to forget to backup before reinstalling and thats probably a bad thing since there isn't supposed to be any important stuff locally stored ofcourse in the first place but you know how these things go...
of course most people by now are thinking :"stop whining and be glad there's a new version out the door" and they are probably right but it's just to show how annoying this is.
but yet another thing strikes me,
sure a home user having to reinstall is not such a big deal but than it's probably also not possible to upgrade from rhel 2 to rhel3.
how do company's manage to reinstall let's say 20 production servers every 2 years and not get into chaos?
i also briefly read about this upgrade howto using apt but i never used it.
i've always been using up2date and it rarely let me down.
so i was wondering what all the fuzz is about apt and yum...
am i missing out on something here or is it just a matter of taste?
if some one has a suggestion or a link on how to upgrade from fc1 to fc2 safely without apt or yum i'll be greatfull.
