So, the only differentiation that's possible for a Server is the lifecycle?
I don't buy that.
How about 'starts services XYZ by default that don't start on the desktop'
(think: mdadm, etc.). 'Easily installs in a minimal fashion.' 'Doesn't
always boot in runlevel 3'.
If the only thing that our Fedora 'server' users want is for us to maintain
it longer, that means perhaps we're *already* hitting that market well
and don't need to make changes.
