Ubuntu

Spring is a lovely time of year, when the flowers bloom, the birds sing and community Linux projects release the fruit of their winter labours. Specifically, the Fedora and Ubuntu projects come to the end of their six-month cycles. This year’s yield is a bumper crop, with Fedora 13 including a number of interesting technologies and improvements and Ubuntu putting on its finest polish for a Long Term Support (LTS) release.

The CuBoxTV is one of several CuBox-i models currently available from Israel-based SolidRun. Whereas the full-up “CuBox-i Pro” model comes with 2GB RAM, WiFi, and Ethernet, the CuBoxTV hits a $110 price target though the reduction of RAM to 1GB and the elimination of the WiFi/Bluetooth radio module, though it still possesses the power of a Freescale i.MX6 Quad SoC clocked at around 1GHz.
