See later messages -- "For all Intel-compatible PCs" would be better.

Using the Fedora trademark this way is unfortunately not in line with
our guidelines.  

As far as "insert and enjoy," it's a very nice instruction but
unfortunately doesn't explain how to really use the Live CD.  If the
user inserts it in her running system, that instruction hasn't really
helped at all.  We need some particular text that tells the user how to
boot from the CD to experience Fedora, and that there's an installation
option if the results are enjoyable.
