I think if marketing were a driving concern for this project, a more 
marketable name for releases than "Fedora Core" would have been chosen. I 
have a classful of students here who just watched me install it. Comments, 
in order, on watching it boot for the first time:

0. Graphical bootup was universally liked
1. Click-through licensing in firstboot was either amusing or annoying, 
depending on the student
2. Universal confusion as to why it said Fedora Core all over the place. 
Even after I explained the Core / Extras / Legacy / etc. business, still 
disliking.

You should've gone for "the 5% nation of harmful free radicals" instead ;-)
