In the past couple of weeks we have:
1) Fedora going out to survey HN about what they want, and 'seamless
hardware compatiblity' being a top response
2) This thread about how there's no institutional (for lack of a better
word) project commitment to any set of supportable hardware in particular
Well, no, this thread is about how there's insufficient 'institutional'
commitment to working on Macs. The answer to 1) is almost certainly not
going to be 'focus on Fedora working well on Macs'. It may well be
'focus on Fedora working well on some specific hardware', but I'd be
extremely surprised if that that hardware turned out to be 'Macs'.
I would not be at all surprised to see a response to 1) be an effort to
define some specific hardware configurations that Workstation targets.
