Fortunately, I can vouch--Les is no troll.  Trust me; have I ever steered

I've wrestled with MS for, literally, decades; sitting to my left is the
(over-priced, buggy) copy of Microsoft Z-80 CP/M Assembler I bought in
the late 1970's on 8" floppy.  I still think the most honest release
they ever came out with was Windows 2000; XP was a hack that added in
crap for Microsoft, not us as users.  Neverhteless, built on Win2K, it
*has* been infinitely more stable than any other relase.  By following
strict rules on what clients can and can't load, I can keep a WinXpSP2
client farm running under Windows Server 2003 for long periods of time.

I don't have to *like* it' but it's the reality we have to work with.

Fedora is an experimental OS.  Things break when new releases come out.
It shouldn't be used for production.  But it's got all the latest
coolstuff.  So?  What's the problem?
