The proposed feature list looks very nice indeed.

I'm very pleased with F10 x64 + KDE4.2 so will probably stick with it until the updates stop coming (Circa F12 maybe?).

Correct. Refer

It is designed so that you can skip every other release.

I agree that KDE 4.x is not polished. But to say that pulse audio does not work correctly and there is no way to re-install/uninstall, sounds a bit like Windows XP mentality, not linux. Yes my grandparents won't be able to uninstall and tinker, but there is always windows.

Glad, however, for the criticism ;)

I'm not pleased with Fedora 10 + KDE 4.2. There are still to many bugs and crashes (plasma, kwin, ...) and to many regressions in amarok 2 (no "added today" feature, magnatunes download does not work, podcasts are crippled and not sorted by date etc.).

I like KDE but KDE 4 is still beta quality. And pulseaudio sucks (sound errors every now and then and you cannot uninstall it anymore like in Fedora 8 - if you uninstall it sound will not work properly anymore).
