We're providing a bunch of packages, that certain groups use to make a
variety of operating systems.  If you want to develop a tool and expect
that it'll keep working on any given release without aggressive changes
underneath, pick the Fedora Desktop operating system.  If you want to
run with the latest and greatest regardless of change risk, try the
Fedora KDE operating system.
