And this is a matter for discussion, not for a simple vote.
With this clarification from Mike, let's set aside our personal preferences
with regards to Gnome vs KDE for a minute and focus on the marketing message
here: What is the effect on the overall Fedora marketing effort of
prominently featuring the KDE spin vs not doing so?
My gut reaction is that it might help promote Fedora within the KDE
community, which would be a positive thing.
Are there any downsides to doing this from a marketing perspective that we
ought to consider?
