if less than, do such students\devs\admins move from Fedora usage
as Fedora.next has nothing for them.
Is not the whole purpose of .next to prevent losing users.

If storage is the problem, cull all

Move spins when created to Linux tracker etc..

Or is it all an Exercise to limit Fedora to Gnome only?
