does not make sense
you talk about 'average users'
your average user is not using linux... it is using mint/ubuntu whatevers.
People that use linux are expected to know how to add extra repos and compile etc...
the choice fedora has to make is:
- we want to appeal to a wider audience and become mainstrem? (this would entail what I've written above)
- we might as well go rolling since that's what our old core audience wants
