Sorry to hear about your problem.   Yet, your post sounds a bit of knee
jerk reaction and a bit of venting.   Neither of which does anyone any good.

To counter your reaction....I've been using RHEL for quite a few years
and never had a printing problem.  Well, maybe that isn't quite
accurate.  I did have a few problems about 2 or 3 years ago when I
changed my printer configuration and forgot a few tricks or maybe the
tricks changed.  Too long ago to recall.

Anyway, that doesn't mean that updates in Fedora don't break things from
time to time.  But, when it does happen it is a good idea to report the
problem (a bug or on this list) and then report the fix.  Just
venting...and not giving any clues is just not being helpful.  Some may
even consider it to be whining. 

FWIW, instead of venting....maybe you could have told folks what your
problem is/was and they would have responded with "Oh, yes, I've seen
that...the fix is....".
