Re: Someone's missing the point...



Hi,

I think Fedora has an image problem, especially with starting users. On my Linux-forum, Fedora is often called a distribution for testing things, not for serious desktop-use. As a Fedora-supporter, I'm always trying to contradict... but there should be nothing to contradict.

As a solution, I think we should focus more on new Linux-users. Currently, there are not really things that attract new users.

Fedora is easy to use, imho it is easier then Ubuntu. I think all popular distributions (Fedora, SuSE, Ubuntu, Mandriva, etc.) are ready for the desktop, but the usage statistics heavily depend on the community. Almost every reviewer is excited about Ubuntu. If that reviewer started with Fedora, maybe (s)he should be even more excited about Fedora.

point to a marketing problem.

Are we clearly defining Fedora to the technical community?
