Thats pretty much how I see it working in the various non-regimented
Enterprises I work with. The regimented ones aren't able to use Fedora
due to the fact that the internal checks for various standards took
about 6 months to get done and were only good for the base release and
no updates. However, I don't think that every business is an
ISO9000/etc place where you have to have a process for making coffee.
