How do you build a robust workstation? How can you tie in containerized desktop applications into rpm-ostree? That is the realm of the Fedora SilverBlue spin!
The Fedora Podcast features interviews and talks with the people who make the Fedora community awesome! These folks work on new technologies found in Fedora, produce the distro itself, or help put Fedora into the hands of users. There is so much going on in Fedora that it takes a whole podcast series!

OK then, let me start with my question
As cloud technologies will help people in having their custom atomic OS installation, how could similar ease be achieved in transferring user’s data ? Let me give you an example: suppose, I already have my custom OS image in the github. When installing my new machine, I rebase the install to my repo and customization will be delivered while I make and drink my coffee. But I’d like my user data (files, app configs, app caches, etc) also to be transferred in similar seamless manner. What possibilities are there to simplify the transition of user data to new HW ? Yes, rsync, cp and friends will do the job, but could it be done easier ?
