If that happens, I would expect Workstation to look at this and say
GNOME isn't the correct fit.
So, lets say Workstation goes for KDE. Then, if am to follow Matthew's
argument, they interpret that as Fedora (and by extension KDE) is not a
good choice for an average end user. They switch to something else.
And then what? We switch from KDE to something else?
Or are we assuming that there is always going to be something other than
Fedora that will be the flagship distribution for KDE and make sure that
average end users stick around KDE?
