Do you realise what a dis-service you do to Fedora
by suggesting that because it is free
you shouldn't complain if it doesn't work?

In my (very long) experience
the quality of Unix/Linux/RedHat/Fedora is very high
and does not need "salesmen" telling you
that you mustn't expect it to work properly.

All software has bugs.
These are due to mistakes on someone's part,
and should be corrected as soon as possible.
