A question to this list regarding Fedora as a Product

 Thanks. This article shows a couple of thoughts, some of them might be
catastrophic, and segmenting the market isn't a bad thing, in corporate
business it's most likely the best strategy, and it can and should be
used also on projects like this one.
 It's probably sad to point this example, but look at what Canonical is
doing. They segmented the market in a attractive way and they are
starting to collect from it (not that others don't do it, but they do it
in a more shy way).

 Looks like we have a challenge :)

 I'm gonna keep lurking for some more time and try to get inside the
Fedora mentality and hopefully might help in the near future, once I'm
relived from other ongoing projects.

 From what I could understand, two goals to reach:

 - Increase the number of Fedora users
 - Increase the number of Fedora contributors

  If this is correct, within up to a month, I'm gonna submit a small
paper for review on this list with a small strategy on how we might
accomplish that. 

  Thanks for all who have contributed pointing good sources of
information on my quest for data.
