How sad. We constantly push the envolope, fix bugs, provide upgrades and 
provide rpm's for stable and development version of our program for
FC3, FC2, FC1 and redhat 9 on our website.

Maybe we should just stick with source and Debian.

I've been seriously thinking of moving to Ubuntu anyway.

Well I guess that's just about it for FC as a community distro.

Hint type "word Processor" into google and see what you get. It isn't either
MS Word or OOo
