Was there any argument against Karsten's variation of:
"Fedora is freedom" ?

I think the original has such an immediate positive reaction for readers of
this list -- and I think for most of Fedora's core market, as well --
precisely because we hear it in the sense of computer jargon. It's the
perfect response to people who think giving up that freedom will somehow
make Fedora better.

I don't really see the word "feature" as computer jargon.

People's faces have features. My stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher have features. My car has features. Movies have featured actors and actresses, and the main show is considered the 'feature'.

Is it just a translation issue?
