Re: [Fwd: Wikipidia - Goodbye Red Hat and Fedora]

Hello, everyone,
I would like to share with you an situation related to Fedora's time
of life that comes to me in recent days.
I was recently promoted to Software Manager in the governmental
partition where I work. Next year we've plans to migrate 500 Linux
desktop stations and, in the last month, finished the migration of all
servers to CentOS.
The question that worries me is that, despite the willingness to use
Fedora, dealing with an "end of life" of 13 months can make Fedora
impractical in these 500 desktops. I'll be pressed to use Ubuntu and
even got to think about maintain by myself an repository for
maintaining, maybe, the most important RPMs always updated even if the
Fedora come to the inevitable 13 months of use.
Perhaps it is time to seek volunteers to bring back the Fedora Legacy
and see if more people are interested this time.

Regards from Brazil
