Techopedia Explains Fuduntu

Fuduntu Linux is a powerful, general-purpose operating system that uses a monolithic kernel architecture.

Fuduntu includes a number of modifications to minimize power consumption, one of which is the integrated applet called Jupiter power management, which is designed to adjust CPU performance settings, screen resolution and output. Fuduntu Linux uses a custom GTK+ theme and an icon theme called Faenza Cuppertino, featuring four square icons. Fuduntu was originally designed for Asus Eee netbooks and personal computers. Since the design is based on Fedora and Ubuntu versions, Fuduntu features a GNOME desktop environment, allowing themes and frames to be changed.

Although Fuduntu software is specifically developed for netbooks and portable computers, it can be used for desktop computers as well.
