Why does there need to be a long-term support for Fedora?
My primary problem with Fedora isn't "lack of stability", but lack of
API/ABI and UI-stability/persistence/sustainability between upgrades.
In other words, I can cope with the number of crashes upgrades typically
come along with, but the number "UI-changes" is what makes Fedora
difficult to use for me.
Why not just
use Red Hat Enterprise Linux?
My view: RHEL is not an alternative to Fedora. CentOS would be a
candidate alternative to Fedora, however due to the nature of its
upstream and its upstream target audience (servers) it lacks a lot to be
functionally "on par" with Fedora.
That said, if I was managing a larger network, I'd likely choose CentOS
as base OS and harvest Fedora to setup a custom "add-on" repo.
