... I know this ... It's them who don't know ... It seems to be a high 
enough hurdle for some beginners to take and enough reason for to 
abstain from Fedora ;)

... unfortunately can't avoid having to agree to the "MTBF accusations" 
and the "xxxx-failures".

Interestingly most of the packages I am personally facing "real 
malfunctions" in Fedora with, are almost identical to what Ubuntu
ships :)
