Fuduntu Done Now, All Hail FuSE

Filed under
Linux

It wasn't two weeks ago that news broke of Fuduntu's imminent demise, but was softened a bit by promises of support and one more release. Then word began to swirl that remaining members were seriously considering basing on openSUSE. But today brought a more dire announcement.

Last week, Lee Ward shared that he and his team have decided that openSUSE would indeed be the base for their new distribution. In fact, in that same post, Ward stated that the new distro would be dubbed FuSE if Novell will allow it.
