the scrolling horizon and with one-click links directly to the ISO vs.
"Spins" hidden beyond the scrolling horizon, grayed out, with no names and

The grayed out logos are particularly outrageous because they are doing to
the upstream logos exactly the kind of things explicitly forbidden in the
Fedora logo guidelines (changing the colors and even reducing them to 2).
(It so happens that the new Fedora logo will likely allow this kind of
usage, but have you ever asked the upstreams whether THEY are OK with those

While "Workstation" vs. "Server" is something that makes sense to most
users, "Atomic" is definitely not (and the description full of technical
jargon such as "Docker" and "Kubernetes" won't help either). Yet,
still refuses to show the full list of choices there and shows only those 3
arbitrarily picked ones.
