Something's in the air ... just few days ago I wrote on the  
"exitement" derivating from a Linux distribution [1]

As i've said in another mail today Ubuntu was started and it's been  
developed to ATTRACT the common computer user to the free / open  
source software side of things.
Each of their move has been made clear, easy to get, and "light" to  
read. And this attracts people (as we all in the linux community has  
witnessed in those last 2 years).

Funny, "Reverend" Ted [2] commented to me that I was "correct that  
Novell could be doing much better on this."

Well, after reading Max's interview on /. this can be seen as a  
mistake from Red Hat's side at the time of the "splitting".

We do have to re-think to our "voice" on the Fedora .... Planet  
Fedora is great, we should try to convert that energy into the wiki/ 
main site.
