Fedora PreUpgrade

Finally upgraded my main workstation from Fedora 8 to Fedora 9. If you are lazy like me then you might want to do it through Fedora PreUpgrade:

$ yum install preupgrade
$ preupgrade

Fedora Preupgrade

Very nice and completely painless!

It also offers an easy way to go from Fedora 9 to Rawhide (the development branch).
