I think that a statement like "We promise user-friendly feel" entails a false
implication which is "Linux is not yet user-friendly yet". For that I am not
too keen on Red Hat's 'promise'. It is of course utter BS.
Is Ubuntu, for instance, not user-friendly? 10-minute installation with
Wi-Fi, Ethernet, video card probing and plenty of software not good enough?
A fully-automated patching with a simplified GNOME UI? What else can one ask
