Filed under
Linux

gmane.org: The specific discussion about making the best possible distro has focused in on target audience. This is a sensible (and arguably overdue) step, because to provide a Fedora that satisfies someone, we first have to know who that person is, and differentiate them from the mass of "everyone," and also we need to be clear in what we expect them to be able to do.
