Somebody in a different NG recently said it was rubbish. The Computer Science
department which I am affiliated with chose Fedora some years ago. However,
they were reluctant to update to some of the latest "because it was too
buggy". I recommended SuSE when there was a vote.

Something tells me that other distributions from Red Hat would have worked
better. So I hear. I am merely a courier here. I rarely use Fedora. Only a
FEW TIMES A week over SSH. No problems /there/.
