You have to do what you think is right.   But you're not showing a very
deep understanding of the situation.   To start with, Fedora has a very
remote (if any) relationship to any RedHat _product_.   FEDORA IS 
Why that is so hard for people to understand is beyond me.    Buy a 
RedHat product, don't vent on a community project which apparently 
has  nothing to do with you or your needs.   

Fedora has an appropriate release policy that meets the needs of its 
target audience.   The dual boot issue barely hit the radar during the
testing phase and the Asus mobo issue didn't affect 99.99% of people.

It probably is time for RedHat to spell out their policy in single syllable
block letters at the top of the Fedora website and force a click-through
policy window during the install.
