The "cutting-edge, testing ground for Linux enthusiasts" approach is
being overrun with new users, that is, the Linux curious.
Yes - it's definitely noticeable on Fedora Forums, where the questions
and responses are very much more basic and desktop orientated than older
communities like Linux Questions or Ars Technica (although these are
probably skewed samples :) ). The fact that Fedora is still the distro
of choice for book authors may also be another reason that we are the
first distro many people use.
Alongside that though, there may be a silent majority thing going on
well. On the whole RHL and Fedora releases just work as advertised, so
there may be many experienced users that just keep using new versions as
they have for years, without feeling the need to evangelize or complain.
