For a long time I was a wearer of the Fedora. Starting with Red Hat 4.2 all the way to 8 and then adopting Fedora when Red Hat when corporate, I was a proud user of all things Fedora. But then something happened and I lost my taste for the research triangle and we parted ways. I found Ubuntu which marked the end of an era.
And I tried to pick up where me and Fedora left off. I gave 7, 8, and 9 a try only to become disappointed on a number of levels. The yum system seemed to spend more time broken than not. The GNOME desktop was little more than a joke, and usb was impossible. I had pretty much written off ever using Fedora again. That is until 10.
