am I the only person that voluntarily uses Fedora? I have only been using it
a short time  but i understood it was a moving target when i signed on.
This thread reminds me of KL. It wasn't that long ago so i am sure most of
you remember to whom i am referring.
Fedora is what it is and some have more experience than others. Is there
some other lesson to take away from this thread?
