Fedora users know from the get-go (or at least should know) that their
distro is nothing more than a beta-test bed for RHEL. Stuff breaks
routinely, and that is an accepted way of life there.

It is the promise of Mark Shuttleworth that Ubuntu was to be a stable
experience and promised not to become another Fedora. It's why I first

rate of development, that we never had before during the Bob Young days.
