You can ignore me if you want, but I don't want your email to be in
the list archives without an appropriate rejoinder.

Your email reflects your knowledge and perceptions of Fedora and
actually sounds more like a troll. Perhaps contacting Red Hat directly
or your local Fedora ambassador would get you the response you want.

Multimedia is already done - it's called Codeina - go read about it.
Wireless - sorted by using better open drivers (e.g. new Broadcom and
Atheros code)

That's RHEL and/or CentOS and it's a heck of a lot longer than 3 years.

Your perceptions are wrong and you are not educating people correctly
for reasons above. Fedora doesn't seem to need saving as it's
community is just as vibrant and diverse as Ubuntu's - I follow both.

(Disclaimer: RHEL licence holder, Fedora user, but this EEE PC 701 is
running an Ubuntu variant - so there =oP)
