Fuduntu - And now for something the same but different

Filed under
Linux

The tag line for Fuduntu reads "Fuduntu - Punny Name, Serious Distro". My initial thought was that it would be another Ubuntu clone but after reading the about page on the Fuduntu website (http://www.fuduntu.org/) I found out that Fuduntu is primarily based on Fedora but has the look and feel of Ubuntu. (Well Ubuntu before Unity).

I downloaded the ISO from the Fuduntu download page (http://www.fuduntu.org/get.php), used Unetbootin to burn it to a USB drive and proceeded to install Fuduntu to the hard drive on my Samsung R20 laptop.

INSTALLATION

Fuduntu has its own installer but it is fairly similar to the one used by Ubuntu. It is fairly easy to work out what you need to do to install the system.

Malware is not only about viruses – companies preinstall it all the time

In 1983, when I started the free software movement, malware was so rare that each case was shocking and scandalous. Now it’s normal. To be sure, I am not talking about viruses. Malware is the name for a program designed to mistreat its users. Viruses typically are malicious, but software products and software preinstalled in products can also be malicious – and often are, when not free/libre. In 1983, the software field had become dominated by proprietary (ie nonfree) programs, and users were forbidden to change or redistribute them. I developed the GNU operating system, which is often called Linux, to escape and end that injustice. But proprietary developers in the 1980s still had some ethical standards: they sincerely tried to make programs serve their users, even while denying users control over how they would be served.

Tessel 2, A $35 Linux Computer That’s Truly Open Source

We’ve seen the first version of the Tessel a few years ago, and it’s still an interesting board: an ARM Cortex-M3 running at 180MHz, WiFi, 32 Megs of both Flash and RAM, and something that can be programmed entirely in JavaScript or Node.js. Since then, the company behind Tessel, Technical Machines, has started work on the Tessel 2, a board that’s continuing in the long tradition of taking chips from WiFi routers and making a dev board out of them. The Tessel 2 features a MediaTek MT7620 running Linux built on OpenWRT, Ethernet, 802.11bgn WiFi, an Atmel SAMD21 serving as a real-time I/O coprocessor, two USB ports, and everything can still be controlled through JavaScript, Node, with support for Rust and other languages in the works.
