Fedora Core The following letter was received from Eric S. Raymond, who has sent it to a number of Linux-related publications and mailing lists. It is presented verbatim. "After thirteen years as a loyal Red Hat and Fedora user, I reached my limit today, when an attempt to upgrade one package pitched me into a four-hour marathon of dependency chasing, at the end of which an attempt to get around a trivial file conflict rendered my system unusable."

wow, That's what I call a loyal user! but in any case, I don't really enjoy articles like these, They just seem to be argument bait. I do have to say that fedora has not really been all that great since its conception (I think that's the right word...) this reminds me that I need to give CentOS a shot though.

I think the word you are looking for may be "inception" as opposed to "conception".
