Updating on Fedora has a different meaning than on other distros. My
latest updates to Fedora 5, the release previous to the most recent, and
well over 6 months old at the time I updated, got me a 2.6.18-1.2200
kernel to replace the 2.6.15-1.2054 FC5 was released with. Surely such
software updating that involves more than just security updates can't be
as stable.
