Uhuh. I made a statement, and you saw that your could turn the discussion into this blind alley where we could argue whether the Fedora project officially uses the word "bleeding" in their marketing materials. And you jumped on it. I'm not falling for it. I won't accuse you of lying on that point. But there is certainly an element of deception in that.

Is Fedora popularly known as being "bleeding edge"? Yes, it is. Deny it, Rahul.

The statement claimed it was bleeding edge that was the aim of the releases made by the project (it is not) when your statement was shown to be BS you changed the arguement into what the "perception" of it is. You can play word games if you like but no one is buying it.

....... skipping masses of opinion........

And my number one complaint about Fedora is not that it is bleeding edge, cutting edge, leading edge, whatever your marketing sensibilities are comfortable with

Twist away, if you change your language enough times maybe one version will be seen as accurate.

Fedora is, in general, less reliable than other distros. Which is fine, considering what Fedora's goals are. (And being Red Hat's perpetual beta is one goal that Fedora can never get completely away from.) You can't have cutting edge features and cutting edge reliability both at the same time.

That must be why more ubuntu updates have caused the system to become unbootable for all users - in less releases and less kernel updates at that. Damn logic and factual data, that's fine go on, keep ignoring reality.

So all I ask is that Fedora reps be honest about what Fedora is.

And in the interim, I will continue to be honest about what Fedora is.

I would reccomend not changing your language every time your arguement is shown to be wrong next time as part of this "honesty".
