I got this reply from a Ubuntu mailing list. Already you got, his thinking
is wrong from the start. I want to give him a strong but positive and good
reply. Need all of your help, please. Thank you.

 Hello There,
I'm taking this conversation at the end but I must say some words. So sorry
for not keeping Russell Bhai's request for the time being.

We like oils and don't like to be straight. You did not ask for any help
here and I neither pulled your leg nor discouraged you. May be I pulled your
leg on some other place and that is why you are hiding your name.

I appreciate your initiative but alas you took a wrong side this time :) . I
wanted to use Linux and the first version was Red Hat 4, which I got free
with some Indian IT mag. That time my brother (was a CSE student) and his
friends tried to use it and after 9 days of trying they successfully brought
the Kernel Desktop Environment on.

It's still that painful. Let me give you a small example and then you might
understand why we should forget about all the other Linux distribution and
start using Ubuntu. Here in Ubuntu I wrote "apt-get install skype" from my
Gnome's shell and it installed Skype and all it's KDE dependencies ( as
Skype is a QT application). Now when I tried to install Skype through YUM,
it says this not found that not found (for example libqt3c102-mt not
found, libqt3c102
not found) so why should I keep trying and trying and trying?

Can you change the system? No you are not. I did not attack you, I just
wanted to tell you Red Hat's ultimate goal is to make money, so they will
not change anything, our options are not closed yet. We have BOSS
distributions like Debian and Ubuntu, so why bother to keep trying Fedora.

Hope you get the message. If you want to stick with Fedora, you are
absolutely welcome. None of us here have any problem. What I mentioned above
is only my personal opinion and not a part of any survey. But I feel that is
the major reason people don't like to use that OS as a primary daily life
computing OS.

One more thing, we really feel disturbed when we spend huge time on finding
solution and make the solution to public. Make that as simple as my kid can
understand. But people don't go through the solution and ask nonsense
questions. I honestly feel disturbed then.

Thanks for the understanding
