What all the anti-everything adherents refuse to comprehend is that their way 
is not the only way. I hesitate to use the term, but we're dealing with folks 
who are controlling. 

On another list I asked two simple questions of the anti faction: 
1) Would it be a big deal for the coders to reinstate the "Everything install" 
button?
2) Was there still an objection if the button were hidden, and accompanied by 
large disclaimers? 

Not one of the vociferous anti-everything faction responded - this was 
reposted three times during a very long debate on the issue. My conclusion is 
that the decision had been taken, and the fact that numerous users disagreed 
with the decision was of no account. The debate was never truly a debate - 
the issue was decided without end-user input. So, I repeat, we're dealing 
with control-freaks - it's a bad sign for Fedora, in my view.
