Filed under
Linux

Thousands of the Linux faithful will converge on San Francisco's Moscone Center next week (Aug. 4-7) for the LinuxWorld conference and expo and the accompanying Next Generation Data Center show. Everything from cool hand-held devices to data center-class servers -- and the open-source software to run them -- will be on display and put through their paces on the show floor. We've compiled info on a dozen products that either recently hit the market or are making their debut at the show.

This Neo Is The One

Openmoko (booth #1234) is promoting its recently-debuted Neo FreeRunner mobile device as the first open mobile computing platform. Utilizing GNU/Linux, the product comes with core software for dialing, SMS and recording contacts. Openmoko plans to unveil a suite of applications for the device at the show. Carrying a suggested retail price of $399, the 6.5-ounce Neo FreeRunner is available in 850 MHz or 900 MHz Tri-band GSM versions to match frequencies in different countries.

Linux-friendly COM Express triplets embed Intel Bay Trail SoCs

When we saw the announcement for the CEM841 COM Express Type 2, we noticed that Axiomtek had already listed two other very similar new COM Express modules — the CEM842 and CEM843 — as “coming soon.” The CEM841 and CEM842 each offers a choice of dual- or quad-core Intel Celeron system-on-chip from the same 22nm Bay Trail generation as the Atom E3845 used by the CEM843. The CEM841 uses the 125 x 95mm COM Express Type 2 Basic format, while the other two modules adopt the 95 x 95mm COM Express Type 6 form factor. The modules specifically support Linux Ubuntu and CentOS, but other mainstream Linux variants should work fine. Read more

FEDORA WORKSTATION: MORE THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS

Anyway, I thought this could be a good opportunity to actually ask the wider community a question, especially if you are using GNOME on another distribution than Fedora, what are we still missing at this point for you to consider making a switch to Fedora Workstation?
