Part of it, as rst noted, is just Slashdotters being Slashdotters
("Red Hat is the next Microsoft!" and so on).
But, the quality of Red Hat releases has been declining as of late
(Sorry, Silly). How they could release the installer in the condition
it was in is beyond me. And, a serious (but simple to fix, AFAIK) bug
in their Apache RPM, which was causing plenty of tech-support
headaches for third-party module teams like PHP's, took *months* to
fix. Part of the "backlash" stems from these kinds of problems.
Still faithful to Red Hat...
