Re: Fedora lifetime and stability

As for a long life (if you can call it that) OS, you should use Windows! ><
>> as for whom don't understand, this was a little joke
As an experimenting expired teenager (21) I've been using Linux for about 5 years now.
@ first, I just downloaded like all kinds of linux (an installed them ALL!!!), i have to admit, I have to admit, i had a lot of time back those days.
After 2 years I had FC5 and Suse 9.xx running. I got frustrated when Suse 10.xx introduced the supersize-me menu. (and now Vista did the same!) :(
As I saw Fedora move on, the way I liked the gui, I started to use it on both machines.
Now I invested a lot of money on books and stuff for fedora and installed even my homebrew server based on fedora. (even if it's not the most stable os)
I spend a lot of time in the dark, searching for random stuff, like how to get my asus usb-modem to work, tweak the os for my needs, install games, etc..
Now this is WHY I use Fedora.
I just love to be in that dark room, spending time @ flashing console screens, lovely man-pages and other -at-the-end- useless stuff.
If I hated the upgrading, the solving, the tweaking, etc... I'd use RHEL , CentOS or mac.
I guess it all starts at the point where you have too choose your flavour of OS.
My opinion is that Fedora is, for me, the best OS EVER! (for now) :) ;)
It feels like a toboggan. You have to klimb the stairs, get the ride of your life, and have to klimb them again to do it over and over and over and ...

This is about where I expected someone to say, "if Fedora used external
packages as they were, rather than customising them for Fedora, users
could simply recompile the latest source, themselves, and it'd work."

Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.  Today, it's FC7.
