Why are we seeing the same lame arguments again and again?
Now that's a bit rude. Lennart is pushing the limits for an advanced
Linux desktop/workstation with his work, and frankly I think it's worth
it, even if it messes with some server use cases a bit. Even if it means
Fedora userbase becomes a testbed for experiments that can be a bit
painful at times. Someone has to do it, it'd better be us, because I like
test-driving the future.
And I also think that is the reason RedHat desired to hire Lennart and
Bastien especially: these guys are really world leaders in some key
desktop technologies. RH officals could perhaps state their intentions
with backing desktop developers out loud so I don't have to guess..
Making sure everything works on server is IMHO one of the big reasons why
Debian cannot hold a release schedule and introduce new features quickly
enough, so these glitches are a side-effect of what makes Fedora great. I
for one can live with it.
