Why does some of us imply it's about noobs? 
I know about many experienced Fedora users and contributors who would
appreciate it, too.

And why are noobs something unwanted? 
As I said above, most new computer science students at our local
technical university are Linux noobs who would appreciate something like
this. They have potential to be good contributors in a few years if
Fedora hooks them up now. Unfortunately, our competition is more
successful at this and it will have an impact on our contributor base in
long term.

How would Software Center hold you from enjoying clean and straight
forwarded Linux? It's just an app. Anyone who'd like to would be able to
use YUM, YUMEX, Add/Remove, Apper,...
