Fuduntu review

Filed under
Linux

Fuduntu is mentioned in several comments in my blog and that makes me want to try it. I have never used Fuduntu before and at the first glance, I thought it is just a derivative of Ubuntu with Fluxbox ( I thought the name was Fubuntu), but then I checked again and realized it is based on Fedora and the name is Fuduntu. And the perfect time has come, a friend just gave me an old laptop yesterday and I am also having some free time so I decided to download and try the newest version of Fuduntu (2012) that uses kernel 3.4.4.

There are both direct and torrent options to download Fuduntu. Since my internet connection is very unstable, the torrent method works best for me. My testing laptop is very old with a weak Centrino CPU and merely 1GB of RAM so I chose the 32bit version. The ISO file is nearly 1GB in size so you will need to use a DVD or a USB to try it. After downloading the ISO, I used Unetbootin to create the bootable USB for Fuduntu.
