Review: Zonbu Laptop

Filed under

Hardware

You want a computer but you are not into gaming. You want a simple yet somewhat powerful computer without breaking your energy bill. You also want a simple and yet powerful Operating System to go with that computer. Where is a person supposed to find such a computer?

Enter Zonbu. The company that has both a desktop model and a notebook model for you to choose from at a low cost.

Today we are privileged to be reviewing the Zonbook. A Notebook with the Zonbu Linux Operating system and with a very low power profile.

This laptop is aimed at the low budget and lower power user crowd so no playing UT3 on this unit. The Zonbook came in a standard Laptop slimline cardboard box with a handle. A little beat up but still this is a nice touch. If you do not have a use for the box Zonbu has a option to send back the box for reusing or recycling. Just another example of how concerned about the environment they are.

The Laptop itself is very very basic.

So, if I were to use Ubuntu on my desktop, I would still choose LTS. Read more

Workflow and efficiency geek talks Drush and Drupal

I started using Drupal because I needed an open source content management system (CMS) to use in several community projects. One of the projects I was involved with was just getting started and had narrowed its CMS selection down to either Drupal or Joomla. At the time I was using a different framework, but I had considered Drupal in the past and knew that I liked it a lot better than Joomla. I convinced them to go with the new Drupal 6 release and converted all of my other projects for consistency. I started working with Drush because I wanted a unified mechanism to work with local and remote sites. My first major contribution to Drush was site aliases and sql-sync in Drush 3. Read more
