"Fedora is all about freedom and rapid innovation." From that, and other places, one can glean that in order to fulfill the "rapid innovation" part an end-user can expect to do some work to maintain the "rapid innovation" part. > This is just not right. > I feel you really mean, even though you don't realize it, that "Fedora is not the right Linux Distro for me". > Should a distro keep continuing to make you install every six months, > if so, I would rather use Microsoft.

It just seems that fedora's stated goals/philosophies differ from yours. I'd suggest that rather than trying to will fedora into your line of thinking you should consider picking another distribution that more closely matches your goals and philosophies. I suspect that more than a few are quite happy with the general goals and philosophies of fedora and would fight you tooth and nail if you tried to change it. FWIW, I've never seen or heard that one of fedora's goals was to become the Linux distro with the largest fan base. :-) Feel free to adopt the suggestions of others. FWIW, I'm happy with what fedora is doing yet I wouldn't consider using it for what I consider to be "production". -- The opinions expressed above have been randomly generated and are the sole responsibility of the haze in which I live.
