Fedora Core The following letter was received from Eric S. Raymond, who has sent it to a number of Linux-related publications and mailing lists. It is presented verbatim. "After thirteen years as a loyal Red Hat and Fedora user, I reached my limit today, when an attempt to upgrade one package pitched me into a four-hour marathon of dependency chasing, at the end of which an attempt to get around a trivial file conflict rendered my system unusable."

Seriously, why does it matter what distro he uses?
Check this out from his wikepedia entry: Raymond identifies himself religiously as a neopagan, and is an initiate witch and coven leader. I don't trust anyone who believes in witches and fairy tales to tell me anything about computers. Particularly those that also just talk and don't code.
