Huh? Your comment makes little sense. You say you like the Fedora goals and it is what attracted you to it. But then you say it became a little like Ubuntu which drove you away to what? Ubuntu? Riiiight... that makes sense, NOT. But then again, humans aren't always logical. :)
I can tell you that while Fedora has tried to make the distro easier to use for newbies they definitely have not changed the focus of Fedora strictly to newbies. They try to walk a tight rope of doing lots of different things all at the same time. That seems to be what interests the developers... and that is who you have to keep happy or the users don't even have a chance. Fedora tries to keep a balance between developer and user and I believe it has done a good job. Flames are pretty healthy as long as people don't decide to pack up their stuff and play in a different sandbox.
From my point of view, Fedora hasn't really changed their philosophy much at all. Yes they have increased their marketing and promotion efforts but those are not what is driving Fedora. I too am a long time Red Hat and Fedora user but I do not suffer from Ubuntu envy.
Canonical might be competition for Red Hat but Canonical has to prove they have a workable business plan and from what I've seen, I don't think Red Hat has much to worry about because they really aren't going after the same market segment. I'm glad Canonical is there to keep Red Hat on their toes though as Novell needs help.
