Taking what Bogomips has said, what matters to me as a user and to every other user is the end result, not the people who work on it and their attitudes and their intentions (i think Putin had said something like this).
The end result is quite good, with Porteus i can browse internet, watch live video streams, watch youtube and porn sites, play webm, use 4chan and 2ch (russian imageboard), play NES, SNES, GBA, PSX and other consoles and games via Retroarch, download torrents, and many more stuff that i dont do.
And a couple suggestions:
1.Reworked USM - it should be looking like the Ubuntu Software Center or Apple Appstore - pictures, big selection of software, newest versions of web browsers, all major open source apps (editors, players, indie video games), tools to play closed source video games, flash players for all browsers, maybe drivers and other system software to support the majority of PCs. It should look neat, with categories, download count, pictures. One repository, one.
2. Eye candy for OS. OS should have a flashy wrap, like Elementary OS. Geeks will change anything they want anyway, initial look should be the one and only for all users. Single DE, single iso file, single web browser. Then devs could put all their effort towards the single vanilla iso file, and it will be much better than constructed iso files.
3. No Duck Duck Go extensions or any unnecessary modifications of open source software. This gives adware vibe to the Porteus.
