Useless in the light of the fact that there are dozens of other conservative
distributions; the whole point of Fedora is to be fast-moving.

And having something to replace with 4.1 when it's ready was one of the
reasons we decided on 4.0, upgrading 3.5 to 4.1 post release would not have
been feasible, 4.0 to 4.1 was. Nobody was forced to upgrade to F9 the day
of the release. That said, I used F9 with 4.0.x on my laptop and it was
perfectly usable as well.
