I have been on the Fedora mailing lists for *years*.   I can never recall someone

"Hi, I'm new to Fedora and I am just installed $NAME....."

I can also never recall anyone using $NAME on the mailing lists in any form.  Still
you see people write FC15 instead of F15...but not $NAME.

I feel $NAME is useless for users.
