... or how do you explain that map of Europe shown on

Please, dear RedHat people, tell me, that your packages are newer than your maps, or nobody should rely on redhat!

And for those who aren't familiar with the recent history of europe:

  • The Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republik reunited 1990
  • Germanys capital is no longer Bonn
  • Czechoslovakia split into Slovakia and the Czech Republic
  • Yugoslavia looks today a bit different, too

Thanks to Frank for the hint and maxx for this blog title.
