Re: Goodbye, Fedora



Whoa!  The big gun AC-130 coming out and hang with RMS with that footnote quote from RMS.  I like it.
It's ironic that a freedom loving guy ESR would selectively deviate on issues of the contrary.

I secretly hope someday the ESR ship will turn around.  I really do.  I'll wait.

Personally, I always actively run different distros so that I can acquire the ability to approximately compare apples to apples.  Three times now Fedora managed to win me back.  I hope my experience means this opinion is balanced.  I do see problems of not including codecs and how it'd affect desktop adoption.  I think that's a problem for Marketing.  Oh yeah, I use Fedora for desktop.  Actually a powerful latop as desktop.  I just don't like noise.

That would be because we believe in Free Software and doing the right thing
(a practice you appear to have given up on). Maybe it is time the term
"open source" also did the decent thing and died out with you.

I'm sure they will be delighted to have you
