That's really the problem, isn't it? Red Hat is a commercial venture,
and their business model is a work-in-progress. The old "personal"
distribution model might have worked great for *you*, but it wasn't
working for *them*, in terms of generating enough revenue to support the
business. It takes two to tango, doesn't it?
I agree with others who have suggested Debian may be a better choice if
you're looking for a personal-use- or hobby-oriented distribution with
more stability than what Red Hat is planning for Fedora.
