Or maybe you didn't really understand the goal of the Fedora Project.

Once again, Fedora is not about conquering the desktop / server market.
It's about developping / building / creating / innovating / revolutionning
the future of the desktop / server FOSS products.

The Fedora distribution is simply a tool to test and build this future.

1. If we wanted to conquer the desktop, we would find a legal way to
provide mp3 and other codecs
2. If we wanted to conquer the server, we would have a LTS (which we had
in fact, but Fedora Legacy died because no one was needing it / willing to
maintain it)
