Not at all.  Red Hat sponsors Fedora which I like and
all those things I can get on my own.  I personally do
not mind going through other packages and getting what
I want and configure the system to my liking.  It was
an honest question which many people ask and they do
not get a clear answer.

Fair enough. I was just curious. May the fedoraproject.org site needs to make this very clear somehow.
