Just look at the "latest" sendmail available for Solaris 8.

Far worse than the complaints about Debian stable.

So, don't complain about Fedora.  You don't like it - fix it Mr. Know-it-all.  
It's GPL and /community/ based.  You want to use it? You want it to suit your 
needs?  /Participate/ in the community!  You don't like the updater?  You 
might contribute RPMS for apt-get or the Mandrake updater - ported to the 
Fedora back-end. Maybe a secure transport for Kickstart - with the rpmfind 

The sky is the limit - - if you don't wait for other people to take you there, 
and /complian/ that they aren't!
