    Well the yum update seemed to have a whole lot of items for FC4,
like 500 and one upgraded Open Office to version 2.0. It is likely that
some new thing like a modified Firefox comes over the Internet from
Firefox direct. And it's no problem at all.

    And my idea of old is sure a longer period than the one used by
Fedora. I will keep FC4 for several years. There is no reason not to
since it's doing what I want just fine after initial bugs were yummed out.

You're prefectly right to do so. I was just curious. I am one who
stuck with Windows ME, even when Windows XP was available. I was dual
booting WinME with Fedora till I got a new machine which had XP on it
already. So if it works for you perfectly, there is really not reason
to upgrade.

To be updated...
