Yes indeed, and so have others I have talked to. :-)

However they never seem to make this very clear on their old web site, but
it appears they have decided to revamp it:


As a complete Linux distribution, Fedora is packed with incredible features.
As a distribution with a rapid release cycle on the front edge of
innovation, Fedora contains many new and interesting technologies that are
often not found in other distributions. Here, we document just a portion of
the key features that make Fedora stand out above the rest.

I think it looks a great deal better from I remember it looking like. They
even seem to have Mentors.
