The mission isn't for your wife though, it's for Fedora. E.g., if our 
mission is to spread free/libre code and content, an effective way of 
doing that is to get it into as many new people's hands as possible. 
With developers as a user base it could be argued that many have already 
bought into FOSS so we're not spreading or gaining new ground there but 
against other distros, which isn't spreading FOSS in general at all.
