I am currently running
Fedora 16 on my laptop, which is like 3 years EOL-ed. The reason that's the case is because it is not easy to upgrade to the current version in Fedora (at least v16) and it requires a complete reinstall. So everything on it it old and doesn't work too well and I am just too lazy to move my data on an external medium and rebuild the OS. Ideally, I would like to upgrade by running a simple
So my lesson learned from this experience is that I would like my next Linux distro to be idiotically easy to bring up-to-date, not because I am incompetent to deal with Linux but simply because I am lazy and want to remain so. I also believe that, in this day and age, OSs should be very easily upgraded.
What Linux distros make upgrades easy to conform to this agenda? I specifically do not want to have to move the data or the file system to a separate medium before performing the upgrade.
I also would like the distro to support KDE, which is my preferred interface.
