I usually like to on the cutting edge of my Linux, so it's kind of a shocker that I just now installed Fedora 17 on my laptop. I intended t o do it much sooner, but important projects kept getting in the way. I finally did a preupgrade and tried to update my live system....but ended up crashing it anyway. I did a reinstall and it was for the better. I had a somewhat precarious partitioning scheme in place and I had recently upgrqaded my ram to the max 8 gigs for my machine...so some re-partitioning was certainly in order.\n I must say that I am impressed again with the latest Fedora offering. Now I can't wait for 18!!
