free and one can make a strong case that therefore Fedora developers
have no responsibility to listen to user's complaints.
However, the Fedora users provide a service to the ReHat company of
identifying bugs that otherwise would show up to annoy the paying users
of RedHat Enterprise .
This is probably a weak argument to support the developers of Fedora
software listening to its users but what is clear is the current
situation leaves a bad taste in the mouths of the current Fedora
user-base. Clearly developers can ignore our complaints, but I have no
evidence that the paying Enterprise customers will be more tolerant of
the strange direction that RedHat is taking.

Ahh, this is all about GNOME 3. It's very unfair to describe the
actions/attitude of GNOME developers at that of all Fedora developers.
This resulted in a discussion touching on the developers responsibility
to users, if any.
Ubuntu and Fedora 14 offers the choice of new or classic.
Not to mention KDE and XFCE.
GNOME 3 is, to say the least, controversial. Ubuntu Unity hasn't had a
uniformly great reception either. GNOME 3 is still in its first
release, and it'll be interesting to see how it develops.
