It certainly affects me.

Most decision are being made on two assumptions 1. people have fast and 
unlimited internet connections and 2. people have high RAM and multiple core 
CPU powerful computers. Both of these assumptions are arbitrarily at best. DNF 
regularly downloads cache, disables delta RPM support, and doesn't support 
local repos. Instead of implementing different profiles for different type of 
networks like wifi vs mobile we are throwing it out without people's consent. 
I am in favor of automation but it should be implemented when it's ready.
