Huh? It's a rolling wreck at times. It's clearly stated purpose is to be 
in perpetual beta mode for RHEL. Back when I used it, when things were 
broken that didn't happen to be in the gun sight at the time, they 
didn't get fixed. I had a project on hold for months, and when I finally 
switched to Ubuntu, no problems and it all worked. You couldn't get me 
to use Fedora if I had to be shot, and I worked for Red Hat from 1999 to 
2000. I was in the RPM world since Red Hat's first release on CD. It was 
like getting a divorce to switch. Now, for our servers, I use Debian and 
for our staff we use Ubuntu with XFCE desktop.

So, no. You couldn't convince me that anyone using their machine for 
serious work would begin to use Fedora. Ric
