I believe that would be legal, yes.

Please do try 2008 before you do that, though. Maybe it'll be less buggy than you expect. ;)

OK thanks for the answer.

Well, I would obviously try it in a VM or something at least.

is that possible / stable to use mandriva .rpms in fedora 8? That would appear to be a great solution to have the speed/polish and security, not to mention Yum from fedora and have the few things i miss installed from the mandriva powerpack without the need to resort to 2nd rate community software that gives me dependency trouble almost all the time. i would really like a x64 multimedia enabled fedora.

I sincerely hope you are correct. I had all sorts of problems with the 2007 KDE One desktop (yes, I submitted bug reports) and they were severe enough that I switched to the Gnome desktop to give 2007.1 a shot. I am quite eager to give 2008 a shot and I hope it works out.
