Yeah, I think it's pretty pointless to shoot for that kind of users. Those
are the kind of users who go complaining everywhere about what crap Fedora
supposedly is because they're unable to fix even the slightest issue with
it, they already get stuck at the point where they're trying to play their
first MP3 file. If people can't do the small amount of resarch it takes to
know what GNOME and KDE are, they won't be able to find things like RPM
Fusion either.
