That works fine but you can't upgrade an existing installation
without a DVD drive or a complicated (and not really documented so
that a linux blivet can do it) set of procedures.
I am really disappointed by this. I don't want to have to go buy a
DVD drive for my mail server which is an older computer (with no
guarantee that it will work). I just wanted to upgrade my mail
server to F7 without a lot of hassles. The live CDs are fun to play
with but I would have rather had a dead CD that I could use to
upgrade my FC5 and FC6 installations.
I did install the F7 live CD on my desktop but I had to destroy the
partitions that had xubuntu on them to get it to install. I didn't
really care about the xubuntu but I would have rather kept it.
I saw somebody complain that it doesn't work with his laptop and the
answer he got was "there is always somebody's laptop that it won't
work with." I'd rather trade all the trick stuff for "it works with
everybody's computer" just like Winblows.
