No, it hasn't. But Fedora is targeted at the desktop user.
And your continuous efforts at stopping any sort of progress
for the *common* case is truly frustrating.

I've used Linux on all my desktops for 12+ years. Never have I
found the root notifications useful in that case. And even if 
they would have been, you seem to have no idea what a non-technical
person would make of them. I'll tell you: nothing.

On the other hand, boot speed is a perceived problem by most users,
technical or not. Back in '98 when I tried to install Linux for
my dad, the 1st question was: but does it start fast?
