This is a serious issue. Fedora 9 has *huge* number of problems, large
and small. The half-baked KDE4 which, even with the update, is nowhere
ready for release. GDM is still missing some basic functionality like
auto-login. Synaptic cannot be used at all, and the developers are
pointing fingers at each other every few months in Bugzilla comments.
May be the Fedora 10 is better. But at least until it has enough
exposure and we know more about it, Fedora 8 is the last usable
release. The support for it should not be dropped until there is an
alternative, and right now (not counting the still-unknown Fedora 10)
the only alternative is Ubuntu/Gentoo/etc.
