It takes almost the 6 month release cycle to get everything working smoothly anyway.  Then chuck it all and start anew with a new set of problems?  No thanks.

I'm noticed, when trying upgrade from F11 to F14, this combination isn't
supported, anaconda refuse it - to F14 is upgrade possible only from F12
or F13. As I usually do fresh install, I not know exactly in which
Fedora version was this restriction introduced, but I am certain this
must occur not long ago - older Fedora distros make possible upgrade
almost without restriction, from any previous version.
