*Someone* on the Red Hat/Fedora team made the decision to make it
available on a very popular distribution to get more testing. And
they did it without putting in the necessary versioning so that kernel
testers could test upstream kernels. That, in my book, is an
anti-social thing to do. Fedora isn't alone, of course; Ubuntu does
this as well, and worse yet, with proprietary binary drivers. But
just because Ubuntu does something worse, doesn't mean that Fedora
should get a free pass for what they did.
