Fuduntu 2013.1 Review: Simple, effective and fast!

Filed under
Linux

Fuduntu Linux was initially conceptualized to be somewhere between Fedora and Ubuntu by Andrew Wyatt - possibly to combine the fun of Ubuntu with the professionalism of Fedora, I guess. On 7th Jan'13, the first updated release of this year came out for Fuduntu with version 2013.1. With the release note in Distrowatch stating some major changes like moving to Cairo dock from AWN, Jockey to check hardware and detect the drivers required, no Jupiter, addition of Netflix and making Silverlight to work in WINE, nVidia optimus compatibility, still maintaining support for Gnome 2, etc., I was more than interested to actually try it out hands on.

Further, given its Mac-ish looks, another intention was to compare with other Linux Mac OS X clones from Ubuntu derivatives, like Pear OS, Elementary Linux and Luninux. I'll add this week Fuduntu to the comparison I made of the Linux Mac OS X clones during December 2012.
