Fuduntu 2013.2, Simple, Effective, fast and now with Steam

Filed under
Linux

Fuduntu, though the name has resemblance to Ubuntu in it, is more of Fedora with the advantage of rolling release. However, to me it is truly Fedora + Ubuntu, as it combines the simplicity and professionalism of Fedora with the fun of Ubuntu. It means that once you install it, you need not re-install it again - by just downloading the updates, your system has always the latest release.With the present release, Fuduntu also comes with a Fuduntu Lite version for advanced users and netbooks, which actually provides the basic shell without much pre-installed applications. For this review, I used the Fuduntu "heavy" version only - may be I'll take Fuduntu Lite next time.

The default desktop looks clean, attractive and typical Gnome 2 with a cairo-dock at the bottom. Menu is the traditional one and easy to use. Good that Fuduntu avoided unnecessary complications where it is not required. Some things work best when kept simple!
