Fuduntu 2013.1 in my production setup!

Filed under
Linux

Fuduntu is Fedora on steroids, but good ones, the kind that do not shrink your testies, instead make you manlier. Pretty, stable, with all the bells and whistles needed for instant productivity, elegant, graceful, fast, and modern. You get the best of all worlds, and then some, including the Underverse of the Necromongers. In fact, Fuduntu has the potential to beat CentOS, because it offers all the benefits of the RedHat platform while being current and posh.

The setup

So after being ultra-pleased with Fuduntu on my SSD-powered test box, I decided to test the distro on my HP laptop, which comes with 4GB RAM, a standard 7,200rpm disk, plus a lovely Nvidia card. The machine boots Windows 7 and Lucid from its internal storage, and there's an external USB disk, which comes with Pangolin, also running Steam, the latest Kubuntu and Mint Nadia. Now, for the first time EVAR, a Fedora derivative is going to be placed there in this lovely, complex, multi-boot setup.

Jessie Release Date: 2015-04-25

This means we are able to begin the final preparations for a release of Debian 8 - "Jessie". The intention is only to lift the date if something really critical pops up that is not possible to handle as an errata, or if we end up technically unable to release that weekend. Please keep in mind that we intend to have a quiet period from Saturday the 18th of April. Bug fixes must be *in Jessie* before then. Read more

5 questions to determine if open source is a good fit for a software project

A benefit of open source in general, and commercial open source in particular, is that you have the support of others as well as the ability to do the maintenance yourself. I hope these questions will help you determine whether open source is a good fit for your next software project. Let me know if there are other questions you would add to this list. Read more
