It shouldn't be. Never be afraid of learning, even in the tightest of
situations. It is good for your brain. It helps with analytical

Once constant learning becomes part of your life, you really don't get

learning as burden. This is not good for humanity. I don't believe
that Fedora should follow this road of lazyness.
