Re: FC3: Looks still like a release candidate. You may want to wait a bit to delete your FC2, or older.

In my experience, the FC3 feels more stable than the original FC2, although
current official updates make FC2 pretty stable. Try to install updates for
FC3 and you should feel it more stable.
Besides, FC2 is the first Fedora Core with 2.6 kernel, and FC3 is just
updated 2.6. Changing from FC1 to FC2 was time-consuming, but FC2 to FC3 is
Having said that, I do concur that you should try to install FC3 in another
partition if you happen to use some unusual applications or hardware that
you want to test before deploying. This should be the same for any OS
Otherwise, for those who are deciding whether to use FC2 or FC3, definitely
go for FC3. There are already lots of 3rd party RPMs available.
But for ultimate feeling of stability, nothing beats paying for support :-)
