I like their description of Fedora

"As we reported last month when the Fedora 13 alpha was released, the
Fedora project has focused considerable attention on automating commonly
used functions for greater ease of use. The latest release of this
traditionally techie-focused cutting-edge, community-driven upstream
contributor to Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) is named after rocket
scientist Robert Goddard. Expected to ship in final form in May, Fedora
13 follows the final release of Fedora 12 in November. "

Not sure we are techie-focused but this is better than the descriptions
from the past.
