Re: Fedora Life Cycle



Actually, I'm still working the kernel bug that broke the VESA driver that we opened when the Dell 745 first shipped. I believe that desktop gets EOLed in the next month or so. The Disk driver to SATA get off of BIOS compatibility mode came two quarters into the machine's life cycle. The RHEL 5 driver update to get rid of the SATA timeouts on start-up won't ship till after the machine is gone at this rate.

So, yes quarterly updates should, in theory solve the problem.
In practice, they are necessary, but not sufficient.

Enterprise nor Fedora fits well enough at the present time.

RHEL regularly enables new hardware in the quarterlyish updates.  You
aren't stuck with two year old hardware sets.
