There are some differences from this sentence which can fairly be
applied to MSFT and applying it to RHAT though.  RHAT gave out all the
pieces and sources needed to pick up package maintainence.

Is that actually true that Fedora's value to you is contingent on RHAT
specifically continuing to provide security coverage?  I guess it comes
down to security coverage FC4 is the 'later' version of FC3 apps already
(KDE 3.5, etc).  For servers that make me feel that bad about
dist-updating them I use CentOS.

Hum, what is your concept for RHAT's relationship to FC3 then, in terms
of what should be?  Just asking to understand.

RHAT seem to be saying that Legacy can come up to the same standard as
internal security coverage, and if it's true then is there still a problem?
