Sure, it is no excuse, and

a) I was not the one trying to make Fedora into "general-purpose desktop 
b) if this is really really important to you, there is enough Linux

Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or
that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the
tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields
to war fever must realise that once the signal is given, he is no

uncontrollable events.
