Switched over to Fuduntu as my main distro the other night. I really like it.
So far I haven't run into any major bugs or anything negative to report.
Keep up the good work.
I just tried it and I like it a lot.
I might switch from lubuntu to fuduntu.
Here are some of my suggestions for the next release:
-Replace openoffice with libreoffice (not in the fedora repos yet )
-replace vinagre with remmina
-remove thunderbird (I guess almost everybody uses a webclient now, people who need a desktop client are probably 2 clicks away from add/remove software)
I hope you consider my suggestions.
I'll follow this project.
Fuduntu 14.7-2 released this morning brings:
- Preload - Preloads commonly used applications into memory
- Crebs - Wallpaper slideshow generator for GNOME
- Dropbox - Dropbox installer with 2GB of free online storage
- Samba Client - For access to Windows computers over the network

As a former Fedora developer I chuckle a bit when they call any release of Fedora "rock solid". I remember what our QA requirements for shipping were. As a Banshee developer I have also seen a sharp increase in the number of bugs reported by Fedora users with F14.
It also seems to ship codecs which is problematic to say the least, right now they likely get away with it on account of being a tiny project with no real impact. If that changes I am sure this feature gets the chop.
Aside that I do miss yum after moving to Ubuntu, it is a far better designed cli package management application and it feels much more right in use.
If I was to move to this I'd certainly miss apport and ppas, both of which have made a huge difference in how I work and use my distribution. I don't think it would be worth it as fundamentally Fuduntu doesn't bring anything to the table. The now abandoned nautilus-elementary e.g. is available for Ubuntu as well, and one could setup a kernel repo that carried the patched kernel Fuduntu uses if it proves a significant work for desktop workloads (though perhaps in this case, the right way would be to engage LKML and get these features into Mainline.. though for e.g. the BFS process scheduler that is likely to happen when personal pig aviation replaces the car)
On strike during the Oneiric cycle due to ungratefulness of Ubuntu.
Don't knock it until you have tried it, though many improvements aren't visible there are a lot of things done behind the scenes to improve the experience on a portable device.
