My guess is that more people are interested running the "normal" distro 
on that machine (for one, I would be), so maybe probably a better effort 
would be to make Fedora proper work out of the box. Also, the "eeedora 
way" may not be the "best way", on Fedora people are encouraged to work 
upstream (here upstream would be Fedora). How about having it as one of 
the Fedora spins?

On another point, there are a lot of other machines out there (currently 
at least from MSI and Acer) with about the same hardware, it is correct 
to label them as "Eee"? (note: I prospect the buy of such machine 
myself, one not made by Asus, only if they would sell around here 
something *not* pink and my intention is to run the full desktop distro 
on the thing).
