We can't afford to licence 80 Windows XP systems either.
Aaron,
I disagree with some of your arguments. Just because you cannot afford RHEL does not mean that you MUST use FC. There are many other free alternatives (Debian, Gentoo, *BSD, etc). Also, there are reasons that bugs can't get fixed. Sometimes there is no time or money or priority to fix a bug. Sometimes there is not enough interest (rare hardware). Sometimes a fix breaks other things and you have to weigh the good of one vs good of many. I'm not suggesting that any of these apply to this problem is particular. Rather I am arguing that statements containing MUST or NO REASON or "other all or nothing words" are generally false.
