Developers, enthusiasts, early adopters, geeks, techies, and anyone who
was comfortable downloading a free copy of Red Hat Linux in the past,
installing it and getting to work. In other words, you, me and probably
most if not all of the people on this list. And now (or pretty soon at
least) we get to participate in the process of its direction and growth
more fully.

I wouldn't expect that at all; remember that Fedora Core is going to be
the testing ground for what happens to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, meaning
Fedora users will see new technologies first, just like we did with Red
Hat Linux. I have a feeling you don't need to be overly optimistic to
see great things on the horizon.
