Yeah.. Wrong word but I did get some attention?

So where were you Craig?  :-)

I have the greatest respect for those that develop Linux, package
Fedora, and provide Fedora. The OS. I feel that, if perhaps, the Get
Fedora site page does not *exactly* provide what I, ME, wants I will
either deal with it or offer, in a polite manor, creative suggestions.
Never, at no time, insulting the person that actually did the work. that
is what I saw. That is what offended me.

I think that those that receive something for nothing should only
complain when the chocolate candy is not sweet.
