I personally do not consider it a poor cousin - if I were to keep the family
analogy I would consider it a kindly rich uncle, but that is how it has been
described in the past and mud sticks.
I am fully aware of fedora's features, if I was not 100% happy with it I
would not have considered becoming an ambassador.
I would be happy if the 10:1 ratio were 1:10 or even 1:1, it would be a sign
that our work as ambassadors is going in the right direction.
I also consider that even one user that migrates from windows or any other
distribution that stays with Fedora is a vindication of the hard work that
the entire team behind Fedora puts in to make such a great product.
