Isn't that going to be the case with every Fedora edition?
How? Server is the only Edition using a Modular release for F27.
I would suggest that the absence of a classic Server that is in line
with every other Edition for F27 (and likely F28) is what will
primarily lead to confusion. As Andrea outlined, the user experience
between F26 and F27 Server is going to be fairly different. If
modularity becomes the norm across all editions, we'd be able to
discuss dropping the "Modular" part in the name.
