Fedora Core Today, Fedora 11 will be unleashed upon the web. The release has been postponed for a few days, but this time it's for real. It comes packed with lots of changes, such as improved boot time, Nouveau as the default NVIDIA driver, and of course the latest and greatest version of various open source packages.

Fedora 11 looks nice. Now when can I expect these nice changes/features to trickle down to my Ubuntu box? To be honest I like both distros. I like the new features feel to Fedora but I miss the ability to update the disto to major new versions the way Debian distos can. Downloading a binary installer is so... old school.

Downloading an installer CD and reinstalling every once in a while is, IMO, the best, most reliable and cleanest way to do it... and there's little chance of harming your /home directory if you have it in its own partition and run the installer with caution.

However, I recall reading an article a while back about Fedora trying to make in-place upgrades easier. Not sure what the latest details are on that, though.
