No I don't live in a developed country, I had even downloaded first
few Fedora releases on GPRS connections. Only got DSL recently when I
had to move to a big city for my job.

Personally, if I can get contributors from business schools world wide
to come up with a unique model to supply community media I will sure
count that as big feature, that could even compete network optimized
software delivery, and I'll be glad to see competitors adopt that
human network break through as well.

I speak for me and community that I enjoy and I did not mention Red
Hat or Shuttleworth. Anyways I owe you lot here, it strikes me that
even Ubuntu community should be equally interested to work with
Fedora's to come up with network optimized media delivery :-)

I hope that will be kept in mind if community takes any further
interest in such future features.
