There's no ppc64le desktop userbase that I know of, but the concern is worth
discussion.  We're talking about customizing the UX of each variant of
Fedora, but how far do we take that?  If we make them diverge too far, we
can't necessarily reuse the interface components in different ways among the
variants.  Not saying that's the case here, just a generalization about why
it is useful to keep the other use cases in mind.

Likely.  And I've been wondering if ARM laptops will take off anymore than
they already are.  If so, that could likely mean smaller
everything...including screens.
