Up through F6, I liked having one or a few copies of fedora to test 
things, knowing that they'd be similar to the next release of 
RHEL/Centos and put up with the fast updates and breakage.  But then the 
philosophy seemed to change in terms of wanting to break backwards 
compatibility on purpose to deliver improvements.  Maybe, years later, 
it will finally happen.  Or maybe the unix design was right in the first 
place. It will be interesting to see how the enterprise flavor shakes out.
