Hi Fedora team, I'm using Fedora since it forked from red-hat . The Linux world is qute changed in 10 years. so my question is Why you do not plan a Long Term Support version as other distribution are doing?

Thanks Fracesco.

Fedora isn't going to change and do LTS, if you want that try Centos7

A bleeding edge distribution cannot hold on to the past. There used to be a project called Fedora Legacy (if I remember correctly) which provided updates for old Fedora versions, but that task was too huge to handle.

If you want to run a stable and long term supported OS that resembles Fedora, you shoud run RHEL or CentOS. Actually, the three Red Hat family operating systems can be described as following:

Fedora: Bleeding edge, community support

RHEL: Stable, commercial support

CentOS: Stable, community support
