Same I've never had issues.  I backed up the config files and thats
about it.  Any emails and all the necessary stuff I needed.

In a like for like against Windows I would say Fedora is much safer than
Windows since last time I upgraded windows I needed to format and start
again a month later.  I've had my FC3 installed since it first came out
and its only been upgraded since FC1 so no issues for me.
