And here the Board's hard work comes into play. Reference, the current
state of the discussion on Fedora's target audience:

https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-advisory-board/2009-October/msg00350.html

"We found four defining characteristics that we
believe best describe the Fedora distribution's target audience:
Someone who (1) is voluntarily switching to Linux, (2) is familiar
with computers, but is not necessarily a hacker or developer, (3) is
likely to collaborate in some fashion when something's wrong with
Fedora, and (4) wants to use Fedora for general productivity, either
using desktop applications or a Web browser."

as per that, 'low-computer-literacy newbies' are not the user group
towards which Fedora is primarily targeted, hence their needs should not
be a high priority in designing the download page.
