    Look at their site. "Punny name, serious distro!"


    @Jerenept:

    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.
    Inkscape is just an apt-get away, and Jupiter runs very nicely on Ubuntu (and Debian).

    I'm not trying to bash it, though. It's good to see someone making an easy to use distro that isn't just an Ubuntu reskin for once.

    Honestly, the first thing I though when I saw that name was that either you where making fun of all the ubuntu derivates, or that it was an "ubuntu sucks because..."-thread

    Edit: don't get me wrong though, I'm not saying its a bad distro, just that the name might be a bit misleading...

    Fuduntu - Punny Name, Serious Distro
    The name is a pun.

    Fedora - F and D from Fedora
    ubuntu - U and UNTU from Ubuntu

    pun
    [puhn]
    noun, verb, punned, pun·ning.
    –noun
    1. the humorous use of a word or phrase so as to emphasize or suggest its different meanings or applications, or the use of words that are alike or nearly alike in sound but different in meaning; a play on words.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/pun

    Funny uses of the name (by people on the internet): Bad Child FUDuntu, Spread FUD-untu, F.U. - Dundu!

    The name is intended to be fun, and funny, while implying that the distribution fits in-between Fedora and Ubuntu. The fun uses of the name mean that it is successful.

    That is fine looks promising. Keep up the good work! If you get a chance take a look into researching BFS/Cgroups. I am around 80% sure cgroups do not work with it. Though I suppose there is no harm adding the patch if it is disabled when you have BFS compiled in.

    Sounds like you have a nice project going. If I had a laptop I'd give it a spin.

    You should be 100% certain because you are right; cgroups is available for users that choose not to use the BFS enabled kernel however it is safely ignored when BFS is in use.
