Lenovo's MeeGo Netbook: Hands On

Filed under

Hardware

It hasn't been exactly smooth sailing for MeeGo, Intel's Linux-based operating system that was developed to go up against offerings from Google and Apple. But there have been signs of life here at Computex 2011, beginning with Asus's launch of the EeePC X101. And now there's the Lenovo Ideapad S100, which was spotted in the wild running a version of MeeGo that's actually usable. Let's take a closer look.

The Ideapad S100 looks like your average netbook from the outside: Its black plastic construction is topped off with a bit of texture that does an exceptional job warding off finger prints and smudge marks. Obviously, black doesn't grab the attention quite as well as the multiple color offerings available on the EeePC X101, but it's a well-designed netbook nonetheless.

You have your Windows in my Linux

I've seen many declarations of victory for systemd, now that Red Hat has forced it into the enterprise with the release of RHEL 7. I don't think it's that easy. Read more
