Is it not?

I think there's this assumption that the current Fedora website is terribly useless. But I look at the front page of fedoraproject.org, and I see *exactly* what I think I *should* see.

If others disagree, it is a relatively simple thing to produce a mockup and say "this is *my* vision."

Unfortunately, websites are ideal targets for bikeshed arguments. And I think that's what we've had, over and over.

I'm reminded of something one of my creative writing professors said as we critiqued one another's work: "If everybody has the same complaint, you need to fix it -- but if everyone has different complaints, you can safely ignore all of them."
