So after successfully convincing my boss to allow me to install linux

in trouble for screwing up a windows computer that other people need, and the
case for linux at work has just recieved a nail in the coffin... So I get to
try to fix this on my own time, thank you fedora, and just hope that in the
far off future I can try again with fedora core 10 or something...
Well, you're catching plenty of flack, but it is rather ironic that you
posted this to fedora-test-list where it was endlessly discussed before
the release, and where there is at least one pre-release post from you.
I can't argue that it is a nasty bug and that it is unfortunate that FC2
was knowingly released containing it, at least without a large
disclaimer at the top of the release notes; however, the information is
out there prominently, and FCx is not being touted for production
machines. Check out RHEL, WBEL, Tao, CentOS, ..., particularly in such
a touchy situation as you chose to do a Linux demonstration for your
management. Good luck recovering - the machine and your reputation.
