*My* Monitor is never detected correctly. I have to manually set this. The
problem? *My* monitor does not identify itself properly. So is that Fedora's
fault? Of my problem? I think it is the latter.

At the very least they usually give you a viewable screen.

The 'Evil God' Windows does not identify monitors. You get a viewable screen
that you then setup using video drivers that you download and install by hand.
