wtf is a power user distro anyway?

You can call something a newbie distro, as newbies have a limited skill
set, and are used to doing things a certain way... (*cough* winblows

But A poweruser distro?

A true power user may sit and compile Linux From Scratch. A power user
can just as easily make a stable system out of a live CD.

What I'm trying to say is,
there is no such thing as a distro for power users.

Power users need tools, and all linux distros provide the same, or
really similar tools. Fedora is no exception.
