I could not rely on that.
My laptop, in particular, has no floppy or CD drive,
and no link to the rest of the world except WiFi,
so if an installations failed, I would have to turn to Bill Gates.
Or maybe take out the hard drive and load it elsewhere.
So far I have always upgraded;
as the last Redhat/Fedora distribution kernel
to work on this machine was Redhat-8.0.
Linux has been deteriorating for some time, in my experience.
