I'm saying you aren't going to get a cross section of users
and actual experiences there - and I don't think anyone wants
them there.

But these things aren't exactly bugs although they have a cumulative
effect that adds up to TCO.  Is there anyone involved in fedora
development that is bothered by the Microsoft claims of lower
TCO?  No single user's experience can tell you how to reduce
the time and trouble (and thus cost) to install and maintain
the system in general.  However, in a forum with a large number
of users the things that take an annoying amount of time and
workarounds will come out.
