Re: Wikipidia - Goodbye Red Hat and Fedora

I am hesitant to use the word reccommend concerning a specific operating system. Educate is a better word when the focus is about choice.

Everyone is different and likewise their solutions to technology problems will be different. it should be our first goal, when discussing Linux, to educate that there are alternatives - Fedora being one of them.

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.
