Not yet.  I was going to upgrade, but then Marc Schwartz pointed out
this show-stopping bug, which may destroy your ability to dual-boot
windows (as I still do)


I have FC2 installed on a test machine. The X server appears to be quite
buggy (this should be no surprise as R has already been patched to work
around one bug) and I have some difficulty getting the NIC to work, so I
am not very impressed.

Bottom line: If you use FC2 then you are on the bleeding edge, and quite
possibly over it. I'll try to get RPMs ready for R 1.9.1 but I'm not
going to hose any of my production machines for your benefit.
