Just found out that Fuduntu is no more ... Jupiter is not being developed ... these things sadden me, Fuduntu was a great OS and it inspired me to spin Lubuntu to look like it for reasons I have done to death and Jupiter has been my number one package on numerous EEE PC 901's ...

Fuduntu - Dell D600

After a mostly favourable installation within VMware it was time to take Fuduntu 2012.1 for a spin on my Linux Donkey Test machine, an old Dell 1.8Ghz, D600, 2GB RAM and a PATA SSD, yes you read that right took a lot of hunting to find that baby!

Fuduntu - VirtualMachine

I like the idea of testing out a Fedora based distro (after years of nothing but 'buntu based fun) especially one thats light and has a focus for netbooks, but before I load up my trusty EEEPC-901 I need to give it a whirl in VirtualBox currently on V4.1.8, I know, a newer version is out but I get cheesed of upgrading and all my distro's breaking!
