Reading this back I may have been a little careless leaving out the fact 
that in spreading Linux we're not entirely doing a bad job, given the 
recent amount of exposure generated with the numbers we could honestly 
come up with ;-) These numbers in fact say we're the greatest in 
spreading Linux, but the question that comes to my mind is;

Do we, or did we, attract these users / achieve this large install-base 
because we keep true to our original cause resulting in a product they 
want to and choose to use, or is it because we market Fedora so well it 
just so happens to be installed on so many machines (although many users 
might actually not care that it's Fedora)?
