I preupgraded my F14 to F16 beta last week (directly, not via F15).
There was one issue with grub and grubby[1], one orphaned rpm from the
openoffice suite (extended-PDF) and some problem with the boot process
but I haven't been able to debug that yet. I have a strong feeling this
is related to the grub problem I mentioned before. Other than these
issues, everything seems fine so far.
