I'm not sure how your comment relates to my previous post - or why

In the end, the tides have turned, whether or not its a good, secure,

In my view, the Fedora desktop should ignore the movement toward
Web-based cloud computing (Good or bad), and cater instead of the
millions that do require a full blown workstation.
