Because it is the flagship spin, the default, the one that will give 
people an image about what Fedora is. I think its quality is poor and I 
don't feel good when I have to recommend people to download it and I 
don't feel good when I give away CDs, knowing what people around me 
expect (for me, I can download and use the install DVD).

I really don't care that much what happens with the  various spins I 
never use, but the default spin is something different, a lot more
