This is incredibly important for all of us to keep in mind.

Marketing Fedora is more than just telling everyone "Fedora is wicked
cool, use it."  It's also about creating Wild Raving Lunatic Fedora

Wild Raving Lunatic.  :)

it can be turned to *tremendous* advantage.  And as Rahul notes, one of
the best ways to do it is to find the valid criticisms, acknowledge them, 
and fix them.
