Question Upgrade fedora core or just install latest stable? [solved]

Hello all,

I found a machine with an existing install of fedora core 4 (or 3). Should I do a yum upgrade or just install a fresh copy? I do not have any important data on there. Which is the better system?

What is the difference between the two versions? I have been using Ubuntu for the past few years and am not that familiar any more with fedora.

I've heard it's best to do a clean install, and that's the advice I stick to. If it's not a critical machine, you might want to go ahead and try the latest testing version (8 Test 3) and play around with the latest and greatest .

Also of note, they have dropped the "Core" from the name as of version 7. If you are looking through mirrors for ISOs, version 7 and newer will be located in the "releases" instead of "core." I would recommend using the torrents, though, which can be found at http://torrent.fedoraproject.org/ .

Thumbs up Thanks!

I will do a clean install.

I am looking forward to seeing the latest and will use the torrents as suggested.
