Fusion Linux 14 Thorium - Fedora Plus Plus
Fedora remixes are far and few in between. The reason is probably two-fold. One, it is RedHat-based, which is commercial, so people might not wish to dabble in its code and create spinoffs. Indeed, Fedora is sponsored by RedHat. It acts as an early testbed of technologies, which are later introduced into the enterprise release. Two, there's yum package manager, which seems to frighten home users, for some reason.
Therefore, it is quite refreshing to find one and test one. Well, I found two, but since reviews normally focus on a single product, we'll have Fusion Linux this week, Fuduntu next week. Let's see what Fusion Linux can do; battle-tested version 14 called Thorium. And before we dig into the technical details, let me bore with a bit of prosaic mulling.
