Hi All;

I don't often chime in to these rants however here's my 2 cents:

As a long time user of Fedora I've seen my share of issues, however as Fedora 
users we need to recognize that Fedora lives somewhere between latest and 
greatest stable and cutting/bleeding edge - and we're effectively the test bed.

I am seriously grateful for the entire pool of developers, package maintainers 
and other folks who give of their time and talents so I can run a distro with 
the latest sweet developments in the Linux world and so I never ever ever have 
to consider running MS windows again. 

If you want to stand back and criticize I suggest the following as the only 
viable actions:

1) Get involved and offer your time/talents to the project (or a related 
project) to ensure that Fedora more closely meets your expectations

2) go find another distro that is more in line with your expectations say a 
longer term support model like ubuntu or CentOS - Fedora is not for everyone 
which is why you'll find > 1,000 different distros on sites like distrowatch.com
