Fedora Core When a group of Red Hat Fedora developers, engineers, and mangers got together last month for a three-day summit in Westford, Mass., the goal was to establish short- and long-term plans for future Fedora projects. The brainstorming session resulted in a road map that will lead to changes for the Fedora community as a whole.

This is your fault for ignoring the release support plan and purpose of Fedora. Redhat makes no money off Fedora, and cannot reasonably support it indefinitely. Fedora Legacy is a volunteer project, and perhaps if it is that critical to your corporate environment you could make a contribution of developers or money. Sorry, but nothing makes me more angry than corporate customers getting mad at FREE open source projects (when they do not contribute themselves).

That said, if you want enterprise class support, look into Redhat Enterprise Linux, SuSe Linux Enterprise, Oracle Unbreakable or CentOS.

Feel free to rant, but you do not no my circumstances. I am not an enterprise customer. I do not expect enterprise support. I do not need enterprise support.

I am in the education sector, I like Fedora, I participate in the mailing lists and bugzilla. I know what Fedora stands for, and I support it. My main motivation for using Fedora is it's philosphy of free software. I do run CentOS where appropriate for Oracle and the like.

But in any type of production environment having patches stop for your infrastrcuture without any notice is enough to get me mad, and make me consider moving.

Ranting does not help anyone, and I hope I wan't ranting.

I believe the rant is at your using the wrong tool for the job.

You complain at the ranter yet your ranting yourself.

Why are you getting mad for Fedora doing exactly
what they told you they are doing?

Which is exactly the point. Fedora was never meant for production systems, and never claimed to be. The fact that you deployed the wrong system for a particular purpose makes it your fault, and yours alone.
