I realize that it was a full moon yesterday but where does all this
whining come from?

RHEL is professional product
Fedora is community - bleeding edge product

The very first paragraph of the home page <http://fedora.redhat.com>

The Fedora Project is a Red-Hat-sponsored and community-supported open
source project. It is also a proving ground for new technology that may
eventually make its way into Red Hat products. It is not a supported
product of Red Hat, Inc.

that said - I find this post to be immature and the poster to be either
entirely misinformed or ignorant.
