Ugh -- I misformatted this.  The top paragraph should be part of the
download Fedora Desktop Edition.

And I'm saying that instead of targeting "new users" we should be
targeting the tasks that the new users want to do.  So if you want the
front page to have two links, one to the default spin and a second to
the spins page, you need to decide what the most important tasks are
that the default spin allows people to perform and make the second link
tell people they can get spins optimized for different tasks by clicking
to the second page.
