But 2.6.24 will be in Fedora 8 when it's released ;) (as 2.6.23 is in Fedora 7 when it was released)

You mean Fedora 9, 8 uses 2.6.23. In the end they all have different development cycles and with Ubuntu on a 6 month one you can only cram so much in.

2.6.24 is still a development snapshot of the Linux kernel which is why it is only in Fedora 9 development tree. When 2.6.24 is available as a stable release, it will be available as an update for Fedora 8 and possibly for Fedora 7 too. Fedora pushes new kernel revisions fairly regularly as updates and stays close to upstream releases.

Wrong, I mean Fedora 8!

Fedora 7 uses 2.6.22 or 2.6.21 first and does have 2.6.23 now.
Fedora 8 uses 2.6.23 now and get 2.6.24 when it's released.

Please read Fedoras changelog if you're unsure.
