And you really shouldn't be using a Fedora release as a Major Development Platform. That's not what Fedora is designed and meant to be. That's a far better job for RHEL where you've got promised ABI/API stability, a very long lifespan, and a lot of effort to ensure things don't change with the updates. Fedora is a more free flowing tool for evaluating technology, where things can and do churn, change, and sometimes break.

So does this mean objective number 4 should be removed from the
Objectives of the Fedora Project page?

"Provide a robust development platform for building software,
particularly open source software."

3rd party hardware vendors' proprietary video drivers are not open
source software.
