Regular release are pretty much a requirement for providing large
numbers or large scale updates. Providing some of these large scale
updates just arent practical without breaking an existing release and
waiting a year or two to launch major updates kind of goes against the
spirit of "leading edge" that Fedora is well known for.

Fedora is not Red Hat. Red Hat releases are based heavily on Fedora
and a lot of Fedoras infrastructure resources come from Red Hat. tThat
is where the link ends.

But regular leading edge releases of open source Linux _is_ what
Fedora does best.

Open Source is about choice. Sure Ubuntu can grind those things out. I
on the other hand think Fedora does it better.
