Fedora and openSUSE should really study the way Ubuntu has engaged the community, and adopt some of the things Ubuntu has done.

I don't me wrong, I like Fedora. I believe technically it is superior to Ubuntu. Fedora will never be on the same level as Ubuntu wrt community though. Fedora/RedHat just don't seem to be trusted by the community I suppose.

the day that redhat becomes compatible with the debian repositories is the day that it becomes what ubuntu is. ubuntu is a polished subset of debian totally geared towards the desktop, which as its popularity shows, is EXACTLY what many have been waiting years for
