Re: Question for our users

Hello Fedora Users!  I was wondering if everyone wouldn't mind answering
the following questions for me to the list.

What is Fedora (the operating system)?

Fedora is a distribution of Linux that is used by Red Hat as a testing ground to prove and test software for its flagship Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat was, at one point, a free, open source distribution until the model was changed and now Red Hat is a purchased, enterprise-level distribution of Linux. Fedora, in essence, has taken the place of the free version of Red Hat.
Who uses Fedora?

Anyone accustomed to the RPM package manager and who cut their teeth on Red Hat.
Who should use Fedora?
New users should avoid Fedora unless they want to be forced to learn the ins and outs of solving Linux issues.
Thanks all!
