LXer: Is Fedora Linux Still Relevant?

Published at LXer:

Is it time to scrap Fedora? I've been in discussions with a group of other writers, Linux distribution watchers, Linux community leaders and developers in the past few days concerning Linux commercial vs. Linux community versions and some of us came to the conclusion that Fedora's relevance has waned. In fact, it might be time to scrap it completely. Or maybe it's time for Red Hat to step up and support it formally and unconditionally.

From the "fine" article:

It seems to me, and others, that Fedora is nothing more than a early adopter testbed and package foundry and not a serious linux distro with strong community support with commercial support options.
No shit Sherlock. Fedora has ALWAYS (from Day 1) been the beta for RHEL and Red Hat has always been upfront about that.
