Talking about spins, the article mentions this

"a Fedora release for gamers, developers and those who are interested in 
working with electronics outside of just computing. If there is one 
thing that is becoming obvious to me, it is Fedora's attack on Ubuntu."

As the guy working on the games spin, I never thought of spins as an 
attack on anything (and I doubt anyone did) but facilitating a targeted 
experience based on Fedora. Anyway it is a interesting view and we sure 
seemed to have improved our public perception. Good for us.
