That's what I thought. Don't get me wrong, I prefer using the command
line myself. But doesn't having to install yumex via the console, in
order to not have to use the console (esp. in the case of newbies)
kinda take away from the whole point?

I say this because there seems to be a perception outside of Fedora
that we (Fedora) has no package management, far less a GUI for the
package management. And I see this on public tech forums. (from
supposed geeks)

Is there any particular reason why yumex does not come on the install
media? I think it is fair to say that people new to Fedora (or linux
for that matter) would appreciate that.

And on a side note, Fedora could do with some better PR.
