As someone who actually sits on the frontline and tries to communicate
with users who are having problems... let me just say It would be
really really... really.. keen if there was a super fabulously easy
way to identify which particular install media image/set a particular
user is using. If we are going to have multiple 'blessed' variants of
install images out in the wild, calling one of them just Fedora is
going to cause buckets of communication problems. Each collection of
stuff that can be pointed to as an installable thing.. needs to have a
subtitle.  I don't care what the subtitle is, name each distinct
installable media image/set the word for flower in a different
language for all I care. Just so each installable media image/set is
uniquely named with something beyond the word Fedora.
