Hi,

In documentation, wherever we are using wget, it is probably better to use curl instead since wget is not installed by default on the Live CD while curl is. Just a thought.

I ran into this problem (missing wget) after installing from the F10
LiveCD, so I can relate.  However, I've no experience with curl, and I
must say, curl --help is somewhat intimidating.  Is it as
straightforward to use as wget, especially for someone that may be new
(e.g., the majority of those using documentation on a new installation
of Fedora)?

The basic usage is simple.

curl <url>

If you want to suggest wget be (re-)added, that is a fedora-desktop list discussion.
