But are there not OTHER Linux distributions that could be used? Some may not
be free either, but will still be less than XP licences and come with "paid"
support.

As far as being "no reason why known bugs cannot be fixed", isn't that
exactly what this community project IS doing? As was stated previously, one
of Fedora mandates is to release new version as specific times. That sort of
means "ready or not", but I'm sure everyone tries to make sure that
catastrophic bugs are eliminated or otherwise minimized prior to public
release.

It would be irresponsible to use an untested OS in any enterprise, just
because it is cheaper (or free). That is similar to owning a property
without any insurance.

I for one am very impressed with Fedora Core 2. But I am even more impressed
with the support that is given right here by users and developers alike.
