Come on, you stretching it waaaay to much. I believe that universities 
would go a more corporate way with support - something like SLED maybe, 
since RedHat doesn't provide any corporate desktop and fedora it too 
cutting edge for such institutions.

Look just at evolution, is has much more bugs now in Fedora 8 that in 
Fedora Core 6 (yes I filed bugs). Nobody sane doesn't install fedora on 
such large numbers of desktops without any support.
