To me, "Fedora Workstation" w/ Gnome is an incarnation of GnomeOS - An 
OS aimed at single-user, single-seat, kiosk-style of use-cases, aiming 
at competing with Android/WinRT, MetroUI and iOS.

I don't know if it's aimed at being a "one size fits all" solution. To 
me, it's a matter of fact, that in general, there can never ever be such 
a thing as a "one-size fits all" solution anywhere.

Define "Workstation". I don't know which audience the people, who 
implemented it, were aiming at - It definitely wasn't my use-case scenario.
