Where is the Linux 'smartbook'?

The smartbook has yet to emerge from pre-product purgatory, though a couple of high-profile devices are due soon.

So far, Lenovo is the only major device maker on record that is ready to deliver a product in the U.S. Its Skylight, originally due in April, will go on sale in the U.S. via AT&T in July, and this month in China, according to a Lenovo spokeswoman.

Though Hewlett-Packard's Compaq AirLife is visible on HP's U.S. support site, there's no indication when or if HP will release the smartbook in the U.S.. (Availability is, however, expected in Europe and Latin America.)

So what's going on?

    It's been five almost five months since the developers behind the Debian-based Devuan GNU/Linux operating system launched the second Beta version towards the first stable release of the OS, and they now announced the Release Candidate. The Devuan project continues its vision of providing a libre Debian fork without using the systemd init system, and the Release Candidate (RC) version brings the GNU/Linux distribution closer to a final release. The interesting fact is that this RC appears to be stable enough to be used for production work.
