Who are 'they' here? developers or the marketing?
Have been discussing with product management and the Red Hat developer
evangelist to make sure we try to satisfy the needs of developers. As
for the needs of marketing we will of course make an ISO image available
they can use for making install media to hand out. But maybe I am
missing the point of your question here?
I expect "they" means Fedora marketing. So far Fedora aims much broader
audience (and it's of course questionable, if it's worth to be all purpose
system), this PRD limits it to a very small subset of users. And yeah,
it means, Ambassadors and Marketing would have to change the strategy. In
the last few years we tried to move Fedora to non techies world/events...
Does this open possibility of having another product? Workstation product
for developers and Desktop product as more users aimed one? But I still
think we can catch good portion of users from both worlds by aiming one
level up - content creators/makers with developers being one big group,
why not only developers in the beginning to speed up development but not
to close doors for expanding this audience.
