I’m following Fedora from afar these days, mostly from the planet and occasionally through people I know at Red Hat. Apparently some people are not happy with the direction Fedora is perceived to be going.
This doesn’t come as a surprise. I’m not sure there has ever been a time when everyone thought Fedora was headed the right direction. At times I wasn’t happy with the direction Fedora was going either. I tried to spend more time moving things forward than talking about what was wrong–though I did some of that too.
I wonder if this quote from a dialog in the One Minute Manager (p. 31) applies:
If you can’t tell me what you’d like to be happening, he said, you don’t have a problem. You’re just complaining. A problem only exists if there is a difference between what is actually happening and what you desire to be happening.
