Re: F10, VMware Server 2.0, and selinux

So I don't understand.  Are you saying that VMware has no right to

they bound by some contract to provide answers/solutions to a free

that their only obligation is to support every version of Fedora for
free?  And if so, what make Fedora so special to get support?

Right? They have a right to do what-ever they want. I never argued
Question is - should Fedora go along with their decision, and support
their semi-broken RPMs,  half-working SELinux support, missing upstream
kernel support and their decision to keep certain features Windows-only.

Fedora, support?? What's that?

FWIW my vote is a (big) no - Fedora's resources will be better spent on
qemu-kvm and virt-*.

I suppose working toward a linux binary standard that would actually make it possible for 3rd parties to build programs that install and run as expected on different distributions is too much to ask... As, obviously, is asking for interface stability for more than a week at a time so 3rd parties could specifically target the distribution's nonstandard quirks in a useful way.
