I would like the option to rolling release or upgrade.  I say this 
because of my family.  My wife is not with the install and I have to 
think of her.  My daughter installed F12 herself on a new laptop.

My wife was running FC7 until I re-installed to F12 but moving to 12 I 
would rather she be able to use a rolling update.

My desktop is still F11 due to time needed to upgrade is not happening.

I have seen our IT staff upgrade Ubuntu machines with a basic click and 
wait.  I have upgraded from F10 to F11 with minor issue.

I guess what I am saying is there needs to be a way for the new user to 
keep their machine updated without all the headaches.  This is why some 
will stick with Windows.  Only needs to be re-installed every year.  :) 
  And you have to pay for any upgrades.
