Hi Brett,

Not at all. The Fedora core is still a desktop and still freely 
available to downlad (I'm currently beta testing Fedora test 3). 
Basically Fedora will be free to the public and will form the core of 
all Red Hat products but there enterprise editions will have a slower 
release cycle and longer support. Read the FAQ's at:


Or if your still confused pop a question to one of the Fedora mailing 
lists/IRC channels (both listed at the site).
