Personally I would prefer a mix of both. You have a live media which
can be demoed and if you want a particular blend of Fedora there are
desktop icons which a person clicks and then runs the anaconda
installer to get to the hardware. However wishes are fishes.

I normally use "live" media for enhanced rescue environments. While
probably not the "best" use, I have seen colocation techs use it to
boot up a system and check out what is running compared to how
hardware was running before. Other places I have seen it used are in
throw away mode places. I have untrusted hardware, network, etc. I
just want to run from a cdrom and save to a flash/usb drive (or some
combo of all that). tada. In those cases, I am not wanting to install
(heck I really really DON'T want to install in some cases.)
