For today's round of "analyzing our press coverage", I bring you:


Plus: Includes Fedora as one of 'em.

Plus: Has Fedora for "I'm a developer, not a user!" — that's a
messaging "hit", since developers are the primary target for Fedora

Minus: Limits "developers" this to "Linux developers", which is _way_
too narrow.

Minus: Says "If you're not already a Linux expert, or determined to
become one, you shouldn't use Fedora." Ouch — that's also way too
narrow. As the Workstation team says "Developers are people, too."

Confusing: Very next line is "Oh it's not hard to use." .... sooooo,
why shouldn't you use Fedora unless you are determined to be an
expert? This makes no sense to me.
