Back to RH9, no. But quite frankly, I've been staying away from FC2. 

With all the noise about various HW problems with the 2.6 kernel, both
the vanilla and fedora specific versions, combined the fact that I'm
partial to both Nvidia video boards and the NForce chipset, well lets
just say that I don't think it's quite ready for prime time yet.

I am however running FC1 on numerous boxes, for both business and play,
and couldn't be happier.

I'm a little worried about the upcoming EOL, and haven't been convinced
yet that the Fedora Legacy Project is going to be able to keep up, so
I've started looking for alternatives for my production boxes. At this
point the frontrunner is WBEL, but the race has not been won yet.
