I second this motion. start.fedoraproject.org is somewhat bland looking and generally
useless. There are a few
fun posts to read, and obviously Fedora-related announcements, but in general the page is
lacking IMHO and
might put a damper on the Fedora experience for new users. It -definitely- doesn't
function very well as a search
engine, especially with drop-down arrows that say stuff like "Free to use, share, or
modify commercially". WTF?
Maybe we can be provided with a link in our favorites/bookmarks to this page, but start
somewhere else? Like
http://fedoraproject.org/ which is much nicer on the eyes, and has more interesting
links and information for new
Just my two cents. I might have already put it in, but here it is again.

Subject: Drop start.fedoraproject.org
in favour of about:home
This message is sent to two lists: websites and desktop.
has many problems , mainly:
1) it's ugly
2) it doesn't serve a clear function
3) It's one of the first things people trying Fedora will see, so it'll effect
their opinion about Fedora.
I suggest we just drop this page completely and use the default firefox about:home start
