I generally do clean installs.  I have my boot drives partitioned up to allow many different installs, for example, this machine has a boot partition, a swap partition and 7 root partitions.  So I do clean installs and copy files over when I'm happy with the setup.

But overall I'm happy with Fedora 17, but no longer happy with Gnome.  I now use XFCE, but I have very old hardware and all the new bells and whistles junk won't run on my system.  Glad I have options...
