Thread: Introducing Fuduntu

  1. #1

    Introducing Fuduntu

    The stable, easy to use Linux distribution for your PC. Based on Fedora 14, Fuduntu 14.6 contains the latest Open Source software.

    Building on the rock solid Fedora base, Fuduntu brings with it a wonderful GUI, and many improvements to make your portable workstation fast, and efficient while enjoying battery life that I consider to be best in class.

    Fuduntu looks fantastic! Through a combination of open source technology and usability excellence, Fuduntu 14.6 shines.


    An example of the tweaks from http://www.fuduntu.org:
    • BFS process scheduler
    • Deadline IO scheduler
    • Processor grouping
    • Jupiter


    Fuduntu 14.6 uses only 150MB of physical memory on startup without sacrificing any functionality.


    Fuduntu 14.6, the next generation of Linux distributions.

    How does it differ from Ubuntu and Fedora?

    Not a bad distro, but also nothing too exciting aside from moving /tmp to RAM for quickness.

    Nothing shabby about BFS, though deadline confuses me. Since 2.6.32 CFQ has low latency mode. Also curious about process grouping, using cgroups? By what basis do you group them? Also, you should know BFS does not utilize cgroups.

    Edit: Targets SSDs I can understand deadline then.

    And, some other applications that Ubuntu seems to lack; like Jupiter (for power saving), Inkscape, etc.
    And it also uses less RAM that Ubuntu, out of the box.
    The above post definitely does not contain any sarcasm at all.

    What does Jupiter do? I have it installed in Maverick it just seems like a menu to do stuff gnome power manager already does. Does it actually save power and the like?

    Edit: The above was not being judgemental I should re-word. I am just curious what it does. The program is light and etc, and works very snappy. Oh, and shows temperature as well. Not bad actually. If it improves power too then excellent.

    Jupiter is the awesome power applet. It will change kernel parameters between battery and AC modes to use less power without sacrificing performance while plugged in. It also provides rotation of the mouse with the screen and a lot more.

    This just in!

    Fuduntu now integrates Nautilus Elementary, and is licensed to redistribute Adobe Flash, and Fluendo MP3 technologies which have been integrated into the distribution!

    Yeah, maybe Feduntu would be a better choice?
