I run Fedora on my primary workstation, and since Fedora Core 1, I have continuously upgraded this same install through all releases inclusively. It originally ran on an HP workstation something-or-other until moved (circa FC3) to its current home in an HP workstation xw8000 with 3GB of RAM. An additional complication is that I have three graphics cards lighting up four monitors, a requirement for a truly successful upgrade. These upgrades have not always gone smoothly (in some cases, not even remotely). In many cases it would have been far easier to start with a fresh install, but what is the fun with that?

Prior to F11, they were primarily media-based upgrades from CD/DVD. From F11 to F17, they were generally yum upgrades. Since F18, they have been fedup upgrades.

F21 finds the installation migrated to two new environments, laptop and virtual machine.

F22 introduces dnf upgrades.

Alas, the 32-bit origins of this Fedora Core 1 image means this streak is on pause, at the least. But a new streak begins.
