Fedora - time to blink

Can we at least cut out the ad-homs?  They're useless as a rhetorical
device, actual worse than useless, they're counter-productive.  Calling
people names will only steel themselves against your position, and other
people will start to lose respect for your arguments.

And, your arguments are valid.  Ever since I switched back to Fedora from
Ubuntu, I hate the fact that I have to tweak my DE to hell and back before
I can use it efficiently after every upgrade, I have to install a decent
font, I have to go into gconf-editor to configure focus-follows-mouse, and
any number of annoying manual steps just to get a desktop that rivals what
Ubuntu gives me out of the box.

But the ad-hominems and bad rhetoric take away from your argument, not add
to it.
