In that it doesn't advertise enough features? (I remember seeing promos
for joining Fedora as a contributor and Rythmbox when doing some repeated
installs over the Thanksgiving weekend. But there was at least one more
that I don't remember.)
Personally I don't expect to be inspired by an installer, but I think that
perhaps additional promos could help people know where to get started
with some things.

I think Fedora gets a lot of good PR, but not in the places the average user
would notice. Linux Weekly News is very good to Fedora. We get a lot of
coverage there and most of it is positive. We also have our own category
for kernel type at bugzilla.kernel.org which says to me, that our kernel
people work very well with upstream and keep our kernels very current so
that bugs about them are of interest to upstream. Fedora is the only
distribution to get this distiction.
