Yes, I know. I believe that was a mistake, but what's done is done. Also, I'm not criticising you for stuff that happened when I wasn't aboard, that would be quite inappropriate.

GNOME is just one piece from the Fedora Desktop (and the Fedora OS  for
that matters). X.org is another piece, Firefox is another piece and so on.

Yes, a very good point. Gnome *is* a huge part, but still, we have to consider where this could lead to down the road.
