Agreed, let us not forget about the open source users.  Let's not let the
people who want to use binary-only proprietary extension spoil the
distribution for those that don't.  On top of which, the first article

already nicely filled by Ubuntu.  There doesn't seem to be much
reason for Fedora to become just another Ubuntu.
