So how much do you think they have invested in Fedora and how do you think 
that redhat do not acknowledge you, the little person ?

I find it amazing that a change in name (probably to stop all the 
[silly] people that believe that because they downloaded and installed 
something called "RedHat" from this "redhat.com" place that they are 
entitled to suppot as part of their right as a free citizen ! nag dabbit 
!) has had such an impact on the people out there.

it is _really_ simple. If you feel so jilted by RedHat's move, then 
_choose another distribution_

Or are you saying that because you gave them $40 of yer own hard earned 
cash 8 years ago, they are not allowed to concentrate on a different area 
of the community ? (while still providing you with a free to download, 
redhat like and community supported distro which has a different name but 
is in essence the same product as redhat but with newer applications)
