My two cents:
I like very much the idea of a planned release date. Even on my small home network
of a dozen physical instances (and twice that many virtual), it makes it easier to
plan. For a business I can see how a release schedule is helpful and even necessary.
 Kudos to the developers and Fedora/RedHat folks for striving to make that schedule.

As to the shifting release date, I actually prefer that they slip and explain why
the schedule slipped than not do so. I was a longtime user of another popular distro
but moved away precisely because of their release schedules (or lack thereof) and
the complete lack of information.

As with you, FC6 is working great on my test machines and the reason I don't drop it
onto my main laptop is that I want a pristine FC6-final versus an FC6T3 that's been
updated to the same level as the final.
