OK, I think I've pinpointed where the conflict of interest originates.

Adam, people aren't looking for installing an OS every day. They look 
for software to install every day. Most users are familiar with sites 
like I mentioned. Where do I coin the term "most?" From web statistics 
that show Windows has a majority of the market.

If you don't want to target "most" users then fine - I'll shut up.

PS. I was well aware that Mozilla Firefox and Pidgin are just one 
software compared to Fedora which is a distribution of software. No need 
to belittle me as you have continued to do.
