I can *not* stand it any longer!

You want a KDE based RPM type Linux distro? You want proprietary software
so you can listen to your music? And so that you can watch your videos?
And the video drivers to do that with and with which to play your games?

You want *all* the proprietary software at one general site? One with
mirrors? Not 'officially' supported but well known and sometimes spoken of
in public? With the RPMs made mostly by the same people that work for the
distro? You want your disto, as described above, to be 'free' of US patent
problems and the 'elitist Fedora attitude'?

Are you people blind? Hardheaded? Or just plain stupid?

Please switch to Mandriva. Please. Save those of us that actually like
Fedora, the way it is provided to us by these fine Fedora people, from the
endless whining posts that go on and on and on. All because *you* actually
have to make an effort to use a geek OS such as Linux.
