+ - ESR gives up on Fedora and switches to Ubuntu

Submitted by Jack Malmostoso
Jack Malmostoso (899729) writes "Eric S. Raymond is pretty pissed at Fedora after "an attempt to upgrade one (1) package pitched me into a four-hour marathon of dependency chasing, at the end of which an attempt to get around a trivial file conflict rendered my system unusable.". So, "After thirteen years as a loyal Red Hat and Fedora user" he decides to switch to Ubuntu, even though he "[is] not expecting Ubuntu to be perfect". Will ESR be missed in the Fedora world? Or more importantly, will he be loved in the Ubuntu community? The letter is published by linux.com: http://www.linux.com/article.pl?sid=07/02/21/13402 37"
