Fedora Core "Several months ago, the Fedora Board (in consultation with Red Hat Engineering) decided to increase the length of time that Fedora releases are supported, in terms of updates. This decision was retroactively applied to Fedora Core 5, allowing it to remain a fully maintained release for several months longer than it would have under the old policy. Fedora Core 5 will reach its end of life for updates on Friday June 29th, 2007."

I found Fedora Core 5 perfect fit for my ageing computers
and Fedora 6 added new features that I didn't really want
so I'll stick with "Five" even if it was officially "dead".
The latest is not always the greatest ( at least on old hardware) and most likely successor on my machines will be Vector 5.8 SOHO which I'm running right now on 5oo MHz Pentium III Dell Optiplex and not FC 6 neither FC 7.
