Re: Linux examined: Fedora 9



We have here 2 bugs who is not been seen as a
advantage for Fedora. Some users are angry, and Ubuntu
users love these problems to show that our distro has
bugs in the release too. The first one is 3 versions
old (yes, Fedora 6 problem):
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=221336

Second, this is not a bug, is a decision made and
users who has Synaptic Touchpad are angry with that:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=439386

Questions, this problems should be fixed, but when?

Cheers,

Rodrigo Menezes
