The reality is that KDE *is* a second class citizen in Fedora - it 
doesn't get anywhere near the attention that Gnome does. If what you 
actually want is to change KDE's status, then that will involve 
attracting more developers and ensuring that they're as involved in the 
Fedora feature development process as the Gnome developers are. Once 
that's done then it's time for a discussion of how the options should be 
presented, but right now claiming that the two are equivalent is simply 
false. Changing the text on the website doesn't alter that. Fix reality 
before trying to fix our description of it.

(And if KDE developers are failing to get involved in Fedora because of 
the layout of the download page, then I think there are larger 
problems...)
