Re: Wanna give me a hand debunking this?

So, to explain in more detail: Fedora was meant to help the development of Red Hat’s codebase with the help of the community. Red Hat uses Fedora (good as it may be) purely as a test-bed, where they can try out new technologies that could prove to be too unstable for RHEL without any risk.

Bullshit.  Red Hat sponsors Fedora for the good of the community.  Now
don't think for a second that Red Hat doesn't also do it because it
benefits, but again, this myth that Fedora is some RHEL beta is bunk.

A better way to find what Red Hat considers fedora to be suitable for might be to ask where they use it themselves. Is there a single public facing server managed by Red Hat that runs fedora?

To summarize, Fedora is an independent distribution from RHEL.  They
share many bits to be sure, and the Red Hat developers work on both, but
they really serve different purposes.  Fedora is community based and
community driven, with a very rapid rate of change.  It's not
appropriate for many large enterprise customers who don't want to
constantly chase the latest bits.  But anyone who says that it is not
ready for prime time is just smoking crack.

Does Red Hat have any critical data that is stored solely on fedora boxes?
