Eric S Raymond and Fedora

I love Fedora Linux, I use it everyday in work and at home and find it a joy to use, and commend all those open source developers who dedicate their time to improving it, it just gets markedly better with each and every release.

I also like Eric S. Raymond, a leading light in open source and the author of the seminal the Cathedral and the Bazaar, but what I don't understand is why Eric continues to attack Fedora and the people behind it in this way:

Goodbye, Fedora

In my opinion, this is further proof of why you should not send an email in the heat of the moment...
