Nothing in that footer, except the amount of "whitespace", is big. The caps
heading the footer columns are smaller than default size, which masked by
gray on gray, are barely big enough to even find.

Are there really people not already familiar with Fedora who would have any
clue what "spin" means in the context used?

I don't know about others who think more logically than artistically, but
when I'm looking for *important* information, like how to actually acquire
that which the page is about, I don't look for or expect to find it hiding in
gray on gray mousetype[1] in the /same/ (gray) block at the bottom of a page
where normal people expect to find unimportant copyright legalese.

Without having assimilated its preceding description of "workstation", or
already being familiar with Fedora, I can perceive nothing in that list that
states or implies "general purpose" or "generic" or "basic" or "play".

Actions speak louder than words. The need to zoom 3X-6X to reach legible a
legible state belies "polished, easy to use".
