Ah, yes. I read about it recently in some Spanish tech magazine... 

IMO, Fedora did *the wrong thing* (since when blindly following what 
Microsoft -or any other company- does is the correct way to achieve a 
milestone?) in *the wrong way* (by not counting with the whole open 
source community support, or at least the other linux distributions, 
before taking such a decision).

Of course, they're not committed to give explanations on what they do nor 
how they do, but neither makes a favor to the FLOSS community :-/
