A customized spin of Fedora with games :), Like KDE spin, LXDE spin, XFCE spin, SugarSpin, ..., etc.  I can ask Bruno Wolffe for more information on the Games spin if needed, but I am happy as it is :)

Wrong!  I did not do that.  I looked for Fedora Cloud Services and that was the first page that showed up.

I read it and it says the following:
We are still working on the Fedora cloud setup, the content of this page will grow at the same time we work and troubleshoot all services.

Well actually it might not be new, but for it to be on Fedora, I scratched my head :)  Since Fedora is a free general purpose operating system, I could not think that "Cloud Computing" would be promoted?

And anyone can host those "cloud computing services" using Fedora if anyone would want to  make money selling those services :)
