Microsoft The month of December has already been unkind to Microsoft. The software giant's Windows operating system and its Internet Explorer browser saw significant market share drops reported on back-to-back days. Not only was the November percentage drop for Windows the biggest in two years, but Windows market share dipped below a number where it has historically held tight: 90 percent. According to Web metrics company, Net Applications, Windows market share as of Dec. 1 is 89.6 percent. Meanwhile, Mac OS X posted its largest gain in two years, with 8.9 percent market share at the end of November.

Oh and I forgot to mention. It is not the distro's job to maintain code from upstream. It is not their job to patch the living daylights out of it, i.e. Fedora. It is not as simple as you make it sound. Far from it, but I'd probably just waste my time trying to explain it.

Whatever the distro decides is its job, that's its job.
