Between Fedora 12 and 13

"In this article, your editor looks at the quality of the Fedora 12 release and ponders what Fedora 13 may bring.

"The Fedora brand has suffered a bit in recent times; the Fedora 10 and Fedora 11 releases have not proved to be the most stable distributions ever. Some users have begun to lament the passing of the days of Red Hat Linux, when quality control seemingly had a higher priority. Said users may well have never lived through the RHL 4.0 and 5.0 transitions, which were not the most rock-solid systems on the planet. Today's Fedora releases are far larger than Red Hat Linux ever was, and they are more stable than many RHL releases were. We have made progress over time.

"Still, recent Fedora releases have had some users wondering if it might not be time to move on to some other distribution. For some of those users, Fedora 12 might be the release which forces the decision one way or another. With this thought in the back of his mind, your editor proceeded to upgrade two systems (one from Fedora 10, the other from 11) to the current release."
