what you guys not realize is the simple fact that currently

a) mobile devices are hyped
b) not that much workstations are sold becaus eno need

a few years ago a new desktop PC gave you a huge performance
boost, these days with 4x3.4 GHz Sandy Brdige machines having
16 GB of RAM and some TB storage you do not need a new machine
for at least 5 years and probably longer

only a idiot would replace a i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz Sandy Bridge
with a i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz Ivy Bdrige, and yes i have both of
them because i was in the position to do a drop-in-replacement
by get a new machine which doe snot need power and switched
the disks of my home-server in it, it's faster but not that much
and the siwtch was only done because the hardware was there

so what - you need all two years a new mobile device by lack
of updates and planned obsolescence and some naive people
start to believe "hey desktops are dying"

any bet that in 5-6 years all this low-brainers will rub their
eyes because the large amount of sold desktops and the biggest
mistake developers can do is cripple down desktop interfaces
to smartphones in the meantime

nobody, really nobody needs Fedora on smartphones
there are eonugh systems for them and we do not need
every distribution on the planet there instead SPECIALIZED
ones which really fit compared to half baken compromises
