It depends on where you're standing. If you follow the well-trodden path, of
always doing a fresh install, not upgrading, and always taking the default
filesystem layout, and only importing /home from the previous version,
you'll be fine.
But dare to venture off the beaten path, and, it's getting ugly. And I'm not
talking about anything weird. Even something as innocent as having
everything on raid1, will result in an upgrade to F16 (or even installing it
fresh, btw) ending up as an unbootable brick. Having listed that as a known
issue, is not an answer. Anaconda, in recent releases, have become advanced
enough so even generally non-sophisticated users, with only a minimum of
technical know-how, can build mdraid arrays. But those users are going to be
screwed if they dare to go with F16, and the steps for remediation are well
beyond what I'd expect them to have.
It can be argued whether or not Fedora is losing mindshare, or not, but
stuff like that is not helpful.
