    Fuduntu cured my distro-hopping habit over a year ago.

    The familiarity and stability of Gnome 2 combined with the latest versions of major applications and the rolling release model make this operating system a winner in my book.

    The elegance, performance, battery life, and stellar community support with Andrew Wyatt at the helm continues to impress me.

    Now that there’s a Lite version how can anyone resist giving this impressive distro a spin?

      Nice review. I installed Fuduntu a few days back and love it. For those with amd processors, DO NOT download the additional drivers offered. I lost my graphical desktop when I did. Just use the default drivers. They work fine. Also, Firefox is available in the repositories, but is not installed by default.
