    Getfedora.org / fedoraproject.org useless??

    A simple subject line but for somebody that hasnt visited the getfedora.org web site in a long time, all i can say is that it is useless!!! This from my cell phone but even there i expect better.

    Maybe the goal was to make it impossible for new users to find the infirmation the need or maybe the web developer just enjoys making life difficult. I really dont know but the team needs to seriously think about fixing the site. If it wasnt due to knowing Fedora from the past i would never of bothered with such nonsense.

    Right now the site makes crap smell sweet.

    Re: Getfedora.org / fedoraproject.org useless??

    I decided to revisit the getfedora.org web page with my desktop. I am actually quite impressed. It presents us with three major columns, for desktop, server and atomic.

    Further below are a cluster of clickable buttons for KDE, XFCE, Cinnamon, LXDE, Mate and SOAS.

    I believe that the page could benefit from a summary of what each clickable option is about somewhere below the display. Perhaps a line or two as a footnote. However, I also noted that once a clickable selection was made, I was immediately redirected to a second web page with the information available for me to use.

    Fedora used this approach, in lieu of just posting a host directory for a good reason. Your download would begin from a mirror site that was closest to your physical location.

    What information did you expect to find. I am biased because I am a 10 year veteran of Fedora and what was presented was informative.

    Moving to Fedora Focus.

    The "sugestions and Feedback" section is for this site only.
