But what I wondered is if this will install any nice new features that
FC4 might have over FC3?
I remember for example that upgrading from FC2 to FC3 (or was it FC1 to
FC2? Can't remember) would not give you the graphical boot sequence that
you would get with a fresh install.
I would especially like to test the new Xen support and that seems like
a pretty "mayor" change.
Any thoughts on that?
Was Xen support automatically installed for you Axel? And you Jarod?
