upgrading Fedora 5 to Fedora 7

with this new release of fedora, i thought much changes will be there.so,I started upgrading process i the evening.while it was checking the dependencies,it showed that it will install 1061 packages.I assumed that it would take 1 to 1-1/2 hr to complete but it took 2-1/2 hr.my ps config was not that poor.256 RAM,20GB for Linux,2.66ghz of processor..one thing i noticed while installation was being carried out as that this version has support for .net application.

 when booting FC7 &,it change my grub installer splash screen& when i selected FC7  to start than it presented with the same booting screen which we get in xp.Something good that i liked a lot as change over of Help & support section.It had the look & feel of the windows.This effort will beginners to feel at home who have migrated from windows.

Hats off to open source community!
