The first question I would say for any Open Source Cloud Conference
needs to answer is "What about X?" where X is CentOS, Mandrake,
Slackware, Ubuntu or Windows.

The big question I still see in most cloud conversations is the OS and
not the applications involved. That is my main reason for not seeing a
good matchup of a general Cloud FLOSS conference and FUDcon. It can
put some sponsors in a hard spot because they dont' want to look
Fedora specific.. and unless we can run this as a part of  UDS also..
it makes it a jarring juxtapostion.

My gut feeling on rumination is that this is more of a Red Hat Summit
set of tracks than a FUDcon.
