At least until you are sure all your working tools are running well.
I had used RH7,RH9, FC2,FC3,FC4,FC5,FC6,FC8,FC11 and now just migrated an istallation from FC11 to FC12.
Still using FC5, FC6, FC8 in some machines. All that I needed there are running. So, apart of a bug fix or security hole, there is no reason to upgrade the OS.
The version upgrade from FC11 to FC12 was surpringly smooth. I normally do clean installs to avoid time wasting to solve problems that cost more than reinstalling whole system.
Also tried Suse/Debian/Ubuntu/Mandriva/Slackware/Knoppix/Vector/Centos, but Fedora was the one that fit my "modus operandi" better. It's not a case of being better than others, it's only a tool that is for me.
