I don't remember stating any of my assumptions in this thread.
I used RedHat/Fedora since RH7, and while some releases were less
successful than others, I never found myself in a situation where I
seriously had to look for alternatives. Initial Gnome 2 release, while
quite controversial, too, did not cause that much breakage as Gnome 3.
This Fedora release is simply too useless for me - DSL connection is
just one of many features I lost with this release (actually, it
isn't, I never used NetworkManager before as it never supported
configuration that I want to use).

I don't recall insulting anyone here either, unless you took phrase
"road to hell is paved with good intentions" as an insult. This is
actually quite well known saying meaning that good intentions not
always give good result
