Why NOT to Upgrade Your Linux System

Why NOT to Upgrade Your Linux System. Nathan Willis writes, over on NewsForge, “I’m not upgrading my Fedora Core 2 machine to Core 3, even though the new version has been out for a couple of months.

True of every operating system out there, machines tend to build up cruft over a period of time, and a clean wipe-and-reinstall are called for.
