Thanks to the folks over at ostastic.com for pointing me to the posts from the developers working on Unity on Fedora and OpenSuse. Both site problems with the upstream developers and seem to be suffering from burn-out. If you know anyone interested in picking the projects up they both seem willing to turn it over. The current decision though puts Ubuntu out on their own in adopting Unity. If you want to test it out you seem to have to use Ubuntu for now.
