Graphics, User Interfaces Now that the second deadline for Fedora 10 themes has been reached, the remaining theme proposals have matured and gotten much, much better. At this point, it is clear that no matter what theme is chosen, Fedora 10 will look great. Still, all themes are not equal. These are some of the best, though.

But as situations permit, I am migrating remaining Fedora boxes under my administration, which are of any importance, to other distros. And I have no doubt that I am doing the right thing.

I take it from that you are running Fedora on Production Systems. Well, that is a risk you take and is one that is not advised by the Fedora Team.

Anyway, you say you went to the Fedora Forums about a bug. Did you not report it with Bugzilla? Did any of the other people suffering from it do the same?
I have reported many problems via Bugzilla and had have an excellent response and even on one occasion worked with the assigned developer to fix the problem.
Fedora is a community. As with many other Linux distros, you only get out of it what you put back in.

Also, ya have to remember on a lot of these forums, that many many people say things to make it sound very urgent, and it ends up being that xmms wont play mp3's or something rubbish like that so many people get aggravated when anybody says that for any reason. Should they be rude about it? no, but will it happen in any distro's community you could go to? yes.

Its hard to explain, but in each forum you find out there is a certain way to say the same thing as you had said before, but get a completely different result from the ones that know your issue. Call it a dialect in the open source language. People are rude, and snobby, and will say things that are uncalled for left and right, but rarely is it the majority, and once you learn your community, you can ask even the most dimwitted questions without too much flak.

Giving up on a good distro because of one, or even a couple bad run in's will keep you running for a long time.
