I'll bite. I am, indeed, a fan of various Enterprise Linux distributions
and I make no pretense that I am not. I do run an Enterprise Linux on
one desktop, and it's also true that I intentionally run my primary
desktop several Fedora releases behind so as to avoid many of the
problems I see from some of these changes. However, I also run more
recent Fedora releases, and on those releases, I typically have to undo
changes such as the one originally being proposed (replacing LVM).
Again, I feel the solution is to have a Fedora architect whose role is
to realize the problems caused by seemingly isolated changes, and stop
them from propagating. You don't just replace years of UNIX (or Linux)
history/heritage overnight without bothering a chunk of the users.
We have that already. It's called FESCO, and is pluralistic and
democratic and stuff.
