Fuduntu Done Now, All Hail FuSE

Filed under

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.

lol name

Imagine googling for problems/issue related to "FuSE" ...

re: name

  • KDE Developer Working On Windows 8 Inspired Look
    Kai Uwe has been working on some experimental hacks to resemble Windows 8, although Microsoft's default interface has changed with Windows 10. He's calling this work "U-Bahn" (the German equivalent of a Metro subsystem system) in reference to Microsoft at the time calling it Metro. This was just some brief hacking and he's not planning to see this U-Bahn project through to the end.
  • Pursuing Awesomeness
    While applets can be installed through “Get Hot New Stuff” and distribution repositories, there’s also the classic .plasmoid file. A feature suggested by one of my colleagues – fresh KDE Plasma user – was to drag .plasmoid files onto the desktop or panel and have them installed. After Marco Martin implemented the neccessary KPackage plumbing this is now possible.
