Re: Fedora 9: Leading edge or bleeding edge?

Why do all the KDE fans take having KDE 4 in Fedora so hard? I like KDE 4 very much, and have been using it on my laptop. The KDE 3 apps work also fine in the KDE 4 environment, so they can be used until we get their KDE 4 replacements.

If one really doesn't want to touch KDE 4.0, there is still support left for Fedora 8.

Fedora doesn't claim to support any proprietary drivers, so I think they can also ship a version of the X server that is not necessarily supported by some proprietary driver vendors. For those needing Nvidia binary drivers right now, there is Fedora 8.

There are dozens of distros who focus on helping new users into Linux. Why can't one of the bigger ones focus on promoting free software and rapid development? Do all the distros need to be the same?
