So, we are working here to recommend Red Hat and CENTOS ??

That's the question, Ubuntu has a LTS, Fedora don't! That's the main
problem of the Fedora Project.

Today, we have many users! With this idea to recommend Centos and Red
Hat, we will have a lot of users in the future ?

Thinking in this way, we will hear frequently "Fedora is a beta tester
version to add and improve technologies for Red Hat EL ".

For me and for marketing, it isn't a great decision!

Now i'm presenting lectures in all Brazilian states and i can't talk
about this.. USE CENTOS OR RHEL. I have to recommend Fedora.

I'm here to represent and spread fedora, not Centos or Red hat EL.
