Is the iPad an iFad?

Filed under
Mac

You might say "all pads, all the time" has been the theme of the past week or so, what with the splashy debut of Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL) second-generation contender. Indeed, by many accounts, the new iPad 2 is truly the best thing since the proverbial sliced bread.

While the limelight has been focused squarely on Cupertino, it's become plainly evident that not everyone has sipped the iKoolAid yet. Early reactions to the new device have been decidedly mixed, in fact -- particularly when it's held up in the clear light of day against Motorola's (NYSE: MOT) Android-powered Xoom.

It's been just a little over a year since Linux Girl last raised the "pad" question with Linux bloggers, who were noncommittal at best back then. Now that we're on to the next iteration, she couldn't resist checking back to see if their opinions have changed.

    Three years, five months and eleven days... yes, it's the elapsed time since our last release announcement. But don't despair! We're still alive and kicking. We've been busy working on our next release which is much more ambitious than the previous one. As part of this future release, we had to adjust a bit how we store some information. That is why today we are announcing a transitional minor release. Behold Zanshin 0.2.2!

    For the second time I had the chance to attend Akademy, this time in cold and rainy La Coruña. It has been a week of interesting talks, good food (except for one Tortilla incident), and hacking.
