Christos makes some good observations, but Juan's is a good
suggestion and I think we should accent our positives.
In my opinion -- and this may not be the prevailing one -- I don't believe that this
should be treated as a football game where we congregate into fans waving banners and
scarves -- "Go Fedora, Beat Ubuntu!" -- because I don't believe the FOSS
mindset should be like that (and I hope it isn't). Nor should Ubuntu users think this
way, of course, but they'll have to address that themselves.
Sure. I totally agree.
That's why I am thinking about Fedora's advantages, NOT Ubuntu (or other
Ubuntu brings a lot to the FOSS table -- just as OpenSUSE and
Mandriva and others do -- and all should be recognized for their contributions.
Improvements made by one distro uplifts everyone else.
Many people start off with Ubuntu, including me. I still use Xubuntu on two machines in
my computer lab in Felton. But I ended up with -- and my distro of choice is -- Fedora
because of the quality and innovation, the camaraderie within those working on it
(pointing to all of you), and the dedication of those of us involved are intangible
qualities that make Fedora superior.
[That and our record of getting project and improvements therein upstream . . . .]
Just an observation here, but you know your audience best, Tuan.
Also, thank all of you for your suggestions and ideas.
I will push and tell you back later.
