Correct but for the new users (like me and the beginners) if they have
somehow installed the fedora 11 would it be a good idea to suddenly
upgrade to fedora 13 and that also from the terminal without knowing
the complete method that way or should again install it, becuase for
newbies and beginners, even if we work initially for fedora 11 (till
we know the basic) we can in future directly upgrade or reinstall?
