Fair enough. (You'ld've been better off with Debian, but ... )

Fedora is a pig if you want to add any new software, I know -- but that is
just plain ridiculous.
Just WTF are they doing?

It sounds to me very much that you're dealing with a bunch of clueless
commercials -- box resellers who don't know what they're doing and hoping
to get their punters to pay for their own learning curve.
For me, installing mailman is a 5-minute job. No more. Actually setting
up a new list usually takes me longer than installing the mailman software
in the first place.
Just my 2p's worth.
