"Activities" doesn't mean much to me either.  Besides, the first thing
one reads after getting to the "Activities" tab is: "Fedora spins are
alternate versions of Fedora, tailored for various types of users via
hand-picked application sets and other customizations."

So, if the tab is "Spins" and you don't know what "spin" is, it is
defined for you as soon as you get there.

I see no need to create a different term to mean the same thing under
the guise of leading you to something.  Since "activity" as no
definition (like spin does) IMHO I feel it leads to confusion.

Would you people stop playing these stupid games?!?!?!!!! 葛斯克 愛德華
