But thanks to bob and others responding to my post on fedoraforum.org
http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=227101 , I think I would
like to broach a subject.  My apologies if this is already a burning issue
-- I am at work, and should not spend time browsing the archives.

Is Fedora really gaining that much ground with every bi-yearly release to
justify that pace?
Gaining ground by what measure?

After all Red Hat is not a desktop but a server, right?  And Chrome could
kill current races to find a desktop to compete with Windows.  So why not
concentrate on what Red Hat/Fedora does best?  Let Ubuntu grind out Gnome
and KDE enhancements.  How often does Solaris release desktop distros?

Thanks again for letting me be a party to the discussion.


Fedora, from my understanding, is trying to be a leading-edge general-purpose distro. Recent versions of all types of software for any purpose. If you want long-term stability, use RHEL(or CentOS, et. al.) If you want to see where things are headed, try new things, and maybe help get there, use Fedora, and enjoy the ride. :)

Unless I'm misunderstanding the question.
