But proceed with caution on F15. It comes with Gnome 3.0, and the
Fedora forums are aglow with issues. Most complaints are just people
resisting change, but there are some real usability problems. I'm going
to stick with F14 for a while. 

But I do agree that F12 is getting really long in the tooth. And Fedora
only supports the current version and one back, so you're no longer
getting any security upgrades.
