Well I mean to people who are used to m$. Well then again, no gui and the 
whole of linux can be cruel. Config files in etc. like configuring a basic 
ftp server (with security). NAT, also. don't work out of of the box. no gui 
to set it up. They shitty system-config-packages gui <--- what was red hat 
thinking? No dvd support. No hints on third party repos for yellow dog update 
modifier commad. Having to configure the yum.conf  Just to get mp3 support.
An ugly boot screen..........OK maybe not this one.No browser plugins setup 
when installed, flash java, etc. First time setting up java browser plugin 
manually for someone who comes from an M$ environment I imagine would be 
quite a task. My mother couldn't do it. to be honest it would take her 2 
weeks with a step by step walkthrough...
oh and no compiling CUPS support for kde print.

thats how and why really. once you have gotten past these things lifeon fedora 
is good.
