Statments like this make me angry. The people who distribute fedora
work for RedHat. RedHat distributes Fedora. Fedora is a redhat product
used to test ideas that
will be put in the Enterprise system. Tom got over heated but many of
us who can't afford to buy 80 RedHat Enterprise systems must rely on
Fedora. And there is no reason that known bugs can't be fixed.

We can't afford to licence 80 Windows XP systems either.
