They're not highly technical in terms of being intimately familiar
with the inner workings of Linux, they're highly technical in their
domains which are complex. They have PhDs in meterology or advanced
medical and aeronautics degrees. And they want the distro they work
with to just work - they can't deal with the instability we've
introduced over the past two years and have started going elsewhere.
The suggestion elsewhere in the thread that one should be required to
have a 'drivers license' to run a distro she related to requiring a
kernel hacker to interpret the results of a medical exam - a highly
technical person just not in their field of expertise.

sounds like RHEL

I *think* (and I'm relaying 3rd party information and then speculating on it, so this may be an exercise in futility) that the difference is that she said Fedora was on the leading edge, and that's why they had always gravitated towards it in the past. RHEL tends to be a bit behind Fedora, for the sake of stability. Even so, when Fedora was leading edge a couple of years ago, it was still stable enough for these folks to do their work.
