Fedora is not currently suitable for mobile devices.  The majority of 
end users want content consumption, not content creation, devices.  The 
fact that computers up to this point have been general purpose enough to 
be both is why we're all here having this conversation.  I'm not saying 
Fedora is going to save the world, but it can certainly save itself by 
making sure that future content-consumption devices can also be used for 
content creation.  It's the hardware that the majority of all future 
developers-in-potential are going to own.
