    I'm just going on experience from what i've heard basically saying if ur on RH9, switch to Fedora as it's not supported. Personally not being a RH person, i wouldn't know, but that's just what i heard.

    Yeah I know where your coming from , I just prefer having operating systems which arent based off anything, basically it's own OS and it's own progs, instead of package selection difference. Such as *BSD, Red Hat, Slackware etc. Alot of new distro's these days only have one thing different about them, Package Selection. Sure your gonna get your basic program native to the OS, but like stated above, they are basic. Fedora seems very undeveloped and it's only a temporary project plus, it's backed by Red Hat Inc. So really there's not much community involvement either, and trust me, if Linux is gonna stay free and popular, it needs community. That is what I love about Open Source, it doesnt matter who or what you are. As long as you contribute, you are part of the Community.

    I think you're grossly misinformed. The Fedora project is far from "temporary" and already has a very strong community presence. Look at their site to learn more about it.

    Actually Techie, I am a fedora user. I just put up with it because I can't be bothered to burn the rh 9.0 cd's, and being a BSD user, I need at least one linux to play with.
