Not everyone feels the need to fix what isn't broken

Yes. Maybe these people should have stayed on Red Hat Linux 5.0 then?

It's been less than a year since FC3 was the CURRENT version.
Let's not make a strawman out of the issue.


I think the thing that should be much more clearly pointed out than it
currently is, is the fact that any given FC release is a *very*
short-lived distribution. People install FC<whatever> because they heard
somebody talk about how cool distro it is, without realizing AT ALL that
the version they're installing is about to go EOL in two months or so.

Perhaps anaconda should be modified to let people know during
install, how much longer the release will be maintained before
it is transferred to legacy.  ;o)

"Installer alert: You do realize that this release is no longer
 maintained actively, but has been transfered to the Fedora
 Legacy project, which may provide community maintained
 security updates.  If you wish to use a currently maintained
 OS release, please upgrade to a newer Fedora Core release."
