Re: Fedora core suggestions

This "life lesson" was meant to be just that -- something for you take
away and digest.  I do sincerely apologize if I embarrassed you; it was
a bad call for me to write what I did.

I now realize, however, it seems quite likely that you could benefit
from some talking with someone about things, as you seem quite angry:

"I don't mind if you feel the need to form a defensive posture on being
told you posted a load of handwaving junk."

My original intention was not to put down you or the project, it was
merely to generate some discussion. 

It's just not worth it.

Seriously, best of luck; I have nothing against you and wish you well.
