Hmm. I could paste your the email conversation I had with an
individual, but I'm not trying to embarrass them, so I'll attempt to

I have "Bob" the link to the fedora unity spins page
Bob was able to read the page
Bob was able to detect that though the page, he could get the CD ISOs
Bob was able to click the links and get to the message where he was
told abotu jigdo and given the jigdo file to download
Bob then concluded that jigdo was Linux only, so gave up as he was on Windows

My conclusion is that relative to the the amount of logic required to
go from finding out jigdo was needed to getting jigdo, Bob was a bit
stupid (maybe ignorant is the more appropriate term, although search
engines are very easily solve ignorance). Not saying that Bob was a
stupid person... just stupid relative to the issue at hand. Ie. as
stupid as I would be if I were to build a jet plane.
