Fuduntu 2013.2

A distribution of Linux derived from the highly acclaimed Fedora operating system
Fuduntu is an open-source distribution of Linux, a remix of the Fedora operating system, which in turn is based on the award-winning Red Hat Enterprise Linux OS. It is a desktop-oriented distro that features the GNOME desktop environment.

The distribution is available for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms, as Live DVDs

It is very important to mention here that the distribution is available for download as two Live DVD ISO images of approximately 1GB in size each, one for each of the supported hardware platforms, 64-bit (x86_64) and 32-bit (i386).

Boot screen à la Fedora Linux

From the way the boot screen looks like, connoisseurs will immediately notice that this is a Fedora-based operating system, as it allows you to immediately start the live system without too much fuss.

It is also possible to start the live environment in safe graphics mode, test the integrity of the bootable medium (only if using a DVD disc) and start the live session, as well as to boot from the local drive by acccessing the troubleshooting section.

Gorgeous graphical desktop environment powered by GNOME

You won’t believe your eyes that this is a GNOME desktop environment, until you notice the main menu on the panel. It welcomes users with an instructional dialog and features a dock (applications launcher) located on the bottom edge of the screen.

Includes only handpicked open source applications

The distro includes top-notch applications, among which we can mention the Shotwell image viewer and organizer, GIMP image editor, LibreOffice office suite, Chromium web browser, Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger, Mozilla Thunderbird email and news client, Dropbox client, Brasero CD/DVD burning software, VLC Media Player, Cheese webcam viewer and Deja Dup backup tool.

Bottom line

Summing up, Fuduntu is a great operating system derived from the Fedora Linux distribution and designed to offer a modern and very attractive graphical desktop environment. Unfortunately, this project is no longer under active development.
