I spend much of my time on the console... the X terminal+ssh one. The
non-X terminal one is a waste of my time.

Please do not take anything I wrote as an attack on the CLI
usefulness. It isn't. I'm complaining of the state of the console
software stack, not on the CLI in general.

The problem is that the population that runs Fedora is highly more
susceptible to fix problems that the population that does not run
Fedora (and tends to wait for someone else to do the work).

The non-Fedora population is the one that was happy with OSS and did
nothing with it (and as a result it got dumped for alsa by the people
who were doing the work).
