FWUL: forget about Windows and switch to Linux to work with Android

FWUL desk

FWUL stands for Forget Wndows, Use Linux, a sentence that encourages you to forget about the Microsoft Windows operating system and switch to Linux, but this project goes beyond that. You can think that it is one more distribution of those that tries to imitate the Windows desktop environment or have some similarities with the MS system, like other projects that we have analyzed in LxA, such as Linspire. But it's not that ...

FWUL is a GNU / Linux distribution specially designed for those who need work with Android. It has been designed to be lightweight, based on the wonderful Arch Linux, but above all, its developers have thought of something else as I have already said. It is designed so that you can have an Android-like experience for those who have problems with the environment that Microsoft offers.

They have thought that many users switch to Linux because they think that this system will ofrece what they do not find in Windows, or rather, that everything bad that they detest about the Microsoft system they will not find in Linux. And they are correct, but sometimes when they come to distros like Ubuntu, Linux Mint, etc., they find that these distros do not include what is necessary for Android users. For example, not having to use commands to debug, modify, flash in your Android devices or install certain necessary drivers ...

In this distro it you will find everything pre-installed, so it makes things much easier for you so that the integration with your Android devices is much more user-friendly and easy for the user. Are you familiar with projects like abd / fastboot, JOdin for Samsung, LGLAF for LG, etc.? Well, in this distro you will find that and more. You do not believe it? You can visit the official project website where you will find much more information about it.
