GNOME 3 Switch To Fuduntu Linux 2013.1

9th January 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, January 08, 2013: GNOME’s, Linux desktop started to crumble the day when its developers came up with new desktop interface, GNOME 3, much against the wishes of users or to be more precise GNOME 2 fans. Mobile-like or metro user interfaces such as Unity, GNOME 3.

Well, we don’t know what made the guys at GNOME take pride in the new interface but they have certainly realised their mistake and are most likely regretting the move. Previously, GNOME developer Matthias Clasen’s official posting stated, “We certainly hope that many users will find the new (GNOME 3.x) ways comfortable and refreshing after a short learning phase, we should not fault people who prefer the old way. After all, these features were a selling point of GNOME 2 for ten years!”

Now, here’s a good news for all GNOME 2 fans. Fuduntu 2013.1 Linux distribution has arrived and uses GNOME 2 interface. Way back in 2010, Fuduntu came into existence as a Fedora-based Linux distribution.

Fuduntu 2013.1 is the first quarterly release of 2013 and brings in new additions like Netflix and Steam on the entertainment front. Fuduntu also brings in support for Nvidia optimus technology and has brought in Cairo as the new dock. Other features includes Linux kernel 3.6.9, Gimp 2.8.2, Thunderbird 17, Firefox 17, Chromium 23.0.1271.97, VLC 2.0.5, and X.org 1.12.
