Fedora Core Lunapark reviews Fedora Core 5, and concludes: "I would only recommend FC5 to people who do not own Nvidia video cards or do not mind tweaking a lot default settings to get things working. Otherwise stay with what you are using and wait for SUSE 10.1 or Ubuntu's Dapper. But if you do stick with FC 5 and get past the quirks, it is quite impressive and I am already eagerly awaiting FC 6."

And in SuSE you could do something similar...I've had luck before with simply adding the new version's repository as an installation source for YaST, then telling it to update any packages if they have newer versions.

Of course, you have better luck with some releases than with others...one of my (very) few gripes with SuSE and YaST is that you have to manually tell it how to resolve dependencies, whereas with Debian-based distros in general that is done for you.

I don't mind downoading the ISO's anyway...I'm paying for the bandwidth already ;-)
