Hi:

Glad you like it!

What Desktop environment did Fubuntu come with KDE? Gnome 3? XFCE?

It is classic Gnome.
It installs rpm files with a simply right-click.

MP3 players, DVD movie all can play by defaults.
Adobe flash player also pre-installed.

Nice that you like it. Just a minor correction, it is Fuduntu, not Fubuntu, it has no connection at all to Ubuntu. It was some time back based on Fedora, but now is an independent distribution.

Fuduntu...got it-

Didn't know that this distro was Red Hat based.

So; is it safe to say that folks that like Fedora will most likely like Fuduntu?

I myself have not tried (I just don't like RPM distros), but the last time it was based on Fedora was with Fedora 14, after that they forked it and became an independent distro. AFAIK, Fufunto is a rolling release distro, so not quite the same as Fedora.

Ah; in that case I may not like Fuduntu- (read up on rolling release distro's)

I learned from Frankbell; one of our Senior Members, that Slackware is a good teacher.

If Slackware, Fedora and Fuduntu were the only available distro's you would run Slackware; wouldn't you TobiSGD?

You mentioned that:

You have your reasons and I respect that but wonder how come? And;
Does Slackware have it's own tools/utilities and you find them much more efficient than RPM distro's?
(trying to understand)

My Fuduntu is on my USB 2 Hdd,
I can use it to boot from my Notebook (intel core i5, intel HD3000 VGA), and also
desktop (AMD Athlon 64, ATI Radeon 3000),
different hardwares, but both give full resolutions.
No hardware conflict!

The only thing is it has no printer driver for my Fuji Xerox Workcenter 3119.

Glad to hear you have the driver that you need.

Before you install the driver make sure your distro is updated.
Run:
Code:
beesu yum update
To install the driver Run:
Code:
beesu yum -y install <name of driver>
I'm reading these article's to learn more about Fuduntu and be a better help to you.

Of course I would, but I also run Slackware with 600+ other available distros, i don't see a reason why that should change if you reduce the 600+ to 2.

I always felt RPM to be somewhat clunky. Can't say why, but i just think that the APT package management is superior by far, when it comes to dependency resolving managers.

Slackware has a whole set of different package management tools. The package format of Slackware is simple and straight forward, I can built a Slackware package of a compiled source with a single command in 5 seconds, for RPM or DEB you have to study a whole book to get the package format and how to build a proper package.
As always, Slackware's adherence to KISS principles makes work for the user much easier.

Tell me about it! I still struggle with Debian and only perform the minamal needed.

Reducing the 600 to 2 was just a theoretically speaking; 'what if' they were the last distro's on the planet-

You can build a pkg from source in 5 seconds! That is amazing!
Thanks for teaching me about Slackware!

Zip file? Most zip files are associated with Microsoft Windows-

When you look at the driver in it's package what is the description or properties?
The name of the driver should be in it's description or show the details of it in the properties window-

What (if you can tell) is the extension at the end of that file?
Hope it's not .exe-
