Hello there,

After 5th consecutive FEL releases, I would assume Fedora Ambassadors
to know at least what we want to achieve with it.
Hence please take some time go through and read a bit on the spin
website what it is and why it is so special.

Our objective (from FEL contributors) with FEL is not to increase the
number of fedora users, but to increase the chance that one day, one
can have a Fedora on a purely opensource hardware. That will take some
time, but it's the Freedom (a Fedora's F) we have to strive for making
it a reality.

But it is Fedora Marketing's job to see how the number of Fedora users
can be increased based on FEL's objective. By deleting that FEL's
paragraph on the F-12 talking point page, Fedora Marketing is limiting
the chance to increase no. of Fedora users. Please note that FEL
LiveDVD was meant for mass-deployment. Just to remind people, that
_twice_ (2 consecutive years) Linux 4 You magazine claimed to have
published more than 20000 issues with FEL dvds (in Asia).

Those who met me last year in Belgium and Germany already saw some
demo raw chips designed under FEL collection.

Fedora Marketing's goal is not to have more users than Canonical's
product, by the way. Let's not divert from this thread.
