Obviously I'm not answering for Jeff, but I wanted to say that your
comments are completely valid, but the thing is... everyone wants to see
a Linux system that works perfectly out of the box and is easy to use
for inexperienced users. I might be wrong, but I think that is one of
the goals of Fedora. Its a fact that we aren't there yet, but the guys
at Red Hat and the Fedora community are working to achieve that.
