No, I was referring to deploying Fedora in "office-like situation",

For them, an OS and the SW they are using are supposed to "just work
out of the box". They will throw away Fedora at the very moment,
they'll be confronted with SELinux alerts or package-kits update
alerts or when they experience the poor shape of certain key
components in Fedora currently are in.

Funny how NONE of them do the same when it comes to Windows

Right, Windows has similar issues, ... nagging ordinary users with popups they are not supposed/not knowledgeable to process is a very questionable design.

It's appropriate for "single-user/single-seat" "personal" setups, but not for "office"/"production" environment desktop and networked/centrally adminstrated installations.
