Did I say this? I am unhappy with Fedora's management's decisions.

Technically, Fedora is quite usable (most of the time), on more or 
modern machines.

If I wasn't interested in Fedora, I wouldn't complain. It's just that 
Fedora increasingly diverges from my needs and increasingly is not 
applicable for my purposes.

Less abstract: This development forces me to not recommend Fedora (or 
RHEL) to customers.

interests into account.
