Fuduntu 2013.1 Review – Quite Punny

Filed under
Linux

Whenever we get a chance to look at the new Fuduntu, our first impressions are always about how nice it is to work with. Positioning itself as a lightweight, battery friendly distro, Fuduntu is one of the few remaining Linux distributions that still uses the venerable GNOME 2 desktop environment, enhancing its functionality with a dock similar to OS X. It’s quite fast, and comes with a decent selection of default apps to let you hit the ground running while you further enhance the experience.

Installation of Fuduntu is nice and simple, with some advanced options for storage and partitioning, followed by setting up users and other system options post reboot. This particular Red Hat/Fedora style of install is always great for OEMs or sysadmins, and the Fuduntu version is as good as any other bar the Mandriva derived distros. The whole process runs at a fairly normal speed on a modern computer, but is nothing to shout about.
