Strange complaint, since Fedora will have a Desktop and a Server spin
- or are you implying that the diff. Windows "versions" are more than
spins?


That wasn't a complaint. Rather, I see the wisdom in 'spins' and think
that it should have been done a long time ago. I'm also rather hoping
that the powers that be will get it down to THREE DISKS maximum. I've
already had to install Kubuntu on peoples machines because 5 disks is
way to much to have a potential convert download.

While I'm not familiar with the Windows code base, I'd image that XP
(and possible Vista) shares quite a bit of code with Server. I think
that Server can be run as a desktop OS, in fact.
