First let me assure you again that I'm not being critical of your

I never said they were. I said that 30% of the problems discussed in the
Fedora list seem to be associated with third party repo compatibility
issues. Similarly, I suspect that Fedora installs properly across a
broad range of hardware. Perhaps 1% of users have install problems yet
they make up another 25% of the issues discussed on this list (both
percentages are just guesses).
