Review: Fuduntu 2013.1

My last experience with it was ok, but there were some problems in the overall integration, some visual glitches, a handful of unnecessary programs, plus some plugin quirks. All in all, it was okay. Now, there’s a new version that I want to test, and it’s labeled 2013.1. For those of you who like small-print, you will like the idea of Gnome 2, full functionality out of the box, a semi-rolling-release-like model, optimization for laptops, and a handful of highly popular mainstream programs bundled with the distribution. There, follow me.

I believe the 2013.1 edition is fresher and more elegant than its predecessors, coming with a very sensible, clean Gnome 2 environment. You get lovely icons, nice fonts, a bottom dock that does all the fancy stuff, and a wallpaper that blends well with the final product.

Desktop effects are available, and they work out of the box, which they did not on Fedora, mind you. Moreover, you can pimp up things considerably with wobbly windows and cube. However, if you stick with the defaults, you still get some rather stylish transitions and semi-translucent borders on inactive  .
