Won't happen. Fedora's aim is the bleeding edge and a testbed for eventual RHEL features. They don't even attempt to support old versions of the os for long. Perhaps they could eat Ubuntu's lunch if they wanted to, but they don't really want to in my experience. I've always found Fedora to be too unstable, my hardware disagrees with a lot of the RH custom kernel patches it seems. I haven't got a chance to try Fedora 13 though, so perhaps it would work better than the previous ones. Still, on my hardware anyway, Ubuntu's stability so far has murdered Fedora without even a struggle. Bare in mind though that I'm one of the few who, it seems, didn't have any trouble with 9.10 whatsoever and my hardware is a little odd by today's standards (mostly integrated SIS chipsets on this board).
