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.
