This really isn't the appropriate place for this.  Fedora's community
marketing group isn't going to be marketing and sort of product that
is meant to be sold to small businesses or to anyone else for that
matter. If OEMs or some other business entity want to install Fedora
on retail computer systems and attempt to make a profitable business
doing it, they are welcome to attempt it. If Fedora as a project needs
to change to make that possible, I welcome any conversation with OEMs
on how to better include them in our contributor-base.  But any
substantial effort to better accommodate these sort of business
endeavors will only be done when there are contributors who are
interested in doing the work.
