I realize nothing can be done about the meta "Guidelines" thrash, but you
know, some would say that if something keeps cropping up, over and over,
you might want to ... I don't know ... fix it!  Or at least acknowledge
that these are problems, and come up with a plan to deal with them,
whether it be political (licensing, patent-coverage, etc), or technical (
issues with gnome3, issues with fonts, issues with multimedia, etc).

The reason people bring up Ubuntu, and Linux Mint is that these
distributions show that Linux Desktop usability is possible.  They've come
up with ways to fix the problems.  All Fedora seems to come up with is
