Fuduntu 2013.2 review

Filed under
Linux

I havent tried any new distro for months. So on the occasion that a new version of Fuduntu got released, I decided to download then install it on my Samsung netbook. As a matter of fact, I had used an older version of Fuduntu last year and somehow liked it. However a problem occurred that the downloading speed was terribly slow back then, it just took me forever to upgrade system and install new packages. So I had to ditch Fuduntu for Linux Mint and havent tried Fuduntu again since then. But after installing and using the new Fuduntu for over a day, I can say that it is different now with many improvements.

Fuduntu review - Download and install

There is nothing much to say here. To download Fuduntu, just visit the official website to select the ISO file and downloading method. I downloaded the full version whose ISO file is over 1GB , so you will need a DVD or a big enough USB to install Fuduntu. ( There is also a Lite version but the ISO is still over 800MB) After booting up with the live USB, I got directly into the live desktop. The live desktop was clean with a install button. There was also a welcome dialog box with several links.

Right now, only three Ubuntu phones are present in the market ranging from $186 to $328 roughly. Ubuntu has been in hibernation mode for the development of this OS for a long time and it looked like they might be consumer ready now, however, after seeing the Ubuntu Phone it looks like they might be far from that scenario right now.
