It really doesn't bug me very much at all. I have no idea what the
names of F10, F11, F12, etc. are...and I get the feeling most people
don't know and don't really care.

One would just hope that the name somehow embodies the spirit of Fedora
and the Linux movement. I don't see where this name does. Guess I'm
not "hip" or part of the "in" crowd.

   I've been using Red Hat products since the Red Hat 7 days...before
their was a Fedora or Fedora Core. I don't recall any "Beefy Miracle".

I frankly (no pun intended) don't think "Beefy Miracle" is a name to be
proud of.

But, like you said, voting on a name isn't of interest to many people.
Seems like more of a popularity contest like DWTS. The best name/dancer
doesn't always win only because one side puts on a better campaign and
manages to get their friends to vote.

As I said, Frankly (pun intended) the name isn't a wiener with me.

I really should have left it at the "cholesterol" joke except that I had
a thought of what others may think.
