Re: fedora-legacy-list Digest, Vol 3, Issue 24

There's no doubt that this was deliberate on the part of Red Hat. But not 
everyone is jumping ship. The last I looked, Red Hat's subscriptions are 
way up, and their renewal rate is between 80%-90%.

Also, while the instability and disavowal of support do scare off 
business use of Fedora Core, the willingness to accept the latest changes 
in existing packages, and to try new stuff is appealing to the geeks among 
us. This is a core (heh) constituency that Red Hat needs to keep on board 
to ensure their enterprise offering stays at a high level of quality and 
relevance. This also seems to be working.
