  1. Fedora has really been getting easy and easier for the desktop user. Tried 13 recently and I am really impressed,
    think I am going to use it as my main distro ....
    Fedora needs to adopt this as an official project.

  2. It is great that someone in the Fedora community is reaching out to the general population. I do the same thing for Ubuntu with BleedingEdge:

    Heck, Mint is all about easy. Both Ubuntu and Novell (Suse) have had 3rd party installers available during installation.

    I used to love Fedora, but stopped using it when they tried to push Fluendo with Werewolf (FC8). Perhaps I will try it again.
