Re: Fedora 16: the begining of the end?
I work as an IT Engineer, at some firm. For us Fedora 15 was the end. Period.
Since then we made up a plan to change about 120 pcs from fedora 14 to Windows 7. I use linux for my everyday needs since redhat 5, but i had to change this too. I hate to say it but I am much more productive using Windows than Fedora 15+, and most of all I still have the feeling of using a computer and not a bank's ATM. CentOS and Scientific may be good alternatives but they seem also like a time journey to the past. User's needs have to follow today's software development so its not an exact alternative solution.
The main reason for me to stop using Fedora was an ethical one as I felt like the turn to Gnome 3 was more of a corporate decision than a community one. But that's already history anyway.
I occasionally enter to the forum here with a hope that someday I will get back my favorite OS.
I understand that distros like fedora have to innovate, but seeing other distros too (Ubuntu etc) , I must say that I dont like the future of GNU/Linux, cause all these "information hiding" will produce a generation of linux users who will be just "button-clickers".
