Well... where do I start? For example the whole default desktop
platform? Yes, we have GNOME 3.12 Copr, but it brings practical
problems.
The whole graphics stack also cannot be completely rebased (it would
require new LLVM which would be too significant change within one
release) to benefit from all the great work Valve's initiative brought
in the last months. So Fedora is not very appealing gaming platform
these days.

I guess everyone can pick something that they care about and that has
become old since the freeze of F20.
