The Fuduntu operating system (something you don’t hear of every day) is actually a lightweight operating system that was specially designed for netbooks as well as other forms of portable computers. This operating system is based on Fedora Linux, and as its name suggests, ought to serve a rather familiar feel to Ubuntu Linux users. Over the weekend, Fuduntu 14.9 was released, where it will now offer support for Google’s Chromium 9 web browser as well as the Adobe Flash 10.2 plugin. Bear in mind that both programs do not come installed by default, although you can get them from the Fuduntu Repository – so installation shouldn’t be too much of a hassle. The operating system will also rely on the Avant Window navigator, which is a new utility for monitoring a program’s use of your system resources among other changes. Anyone giving it a go?
