Wrong wording but I'm still very patriotic to fedora if that can be used

Granted however it seemed really one sided.  He/she seemed very much
wanting things to be 'closer' to the put in and install straight away type
which I personally don't like but everyone to his own.

The complaints however seemed like the majority is caused by him however
there was no acknowledgement of his perceived ways of doing things.  The
fact that his choice was apt seemed to be that he was assessing(typo) from
a debian perspective which I think is not in the 'spirit' of how to do
things. Since Fedora is obviously not a debian fork or debian based
