As you said, it's not only jargon but an idiom, therefore hard to
translate. It would require explanation to non-native English speakers
To everyone that dislikes "light up", OK. We hear you. We debated
this phrase repeatedly in the Council FAD. All the other terminology
didn't play well either:
"enables": this was second place, but what does that mean? We do
specific hardware enablement? No, we don't.
"powers": Also jargon-y and weird
"turns on": Archaic, technically incorrect, and has awkward double meaning
"boots": technically accurate, but very limiting in terms of the
platform Fedora is aiming to provide
"drives, facilitates, switches on, is the core of": all pretty vague
Please provide alternatives rather than just say it is jargon-y.
Also, I don't want to bikeshed this mission to death word-for-word.
Perfect is the enemy of good. If "enables" is what everyone feels is
