Um, I thought Red Hat was releasing a tested and supported system...and
Fedora was just a test bed for the latest software and was only for those
willing/desiring to take the chance/risk...and deal with bleeding edge
software?  (...should there be more emphasis on bleeding?)  I think no one
has room to complain (well, for the most part) of this paradigm/...  As for
myself...yes I might have some worries with regards to basic file system
changes (ext3/ext4/btrfs.../others?) and hope for no catastrophic results
from using bleeding edge software.  But I have no worries about the rest
and so far no insurmountable difficulties...and I have made my choice a
very long time ago (I did start with RedHat 4.0 I think)...and I support
Fedora (at least as a KDE user...)....


PS: I am not interested in creating any flame wars, accusations of troll
baiting...I just want a system that I can use,,,and Fadora ( has mostly)
done this for me.  I have never be a Gnome user, feels too locked
down...difficult...excepting (for a brief period of time) when KDE 4.0 was
released I have just been a KDE user with the Fedora base....then I tried
Gnome, gave up and tried several other desktop managers for several months
and then reverted to KDE once new versions were released.
