Between the tiny PC phenomenon and the growing number of PCs shipping with Linux preloaded over the past year, there's been no shortage of hardware announcements for Linux fans.

It's been a little less active on the tablet front, but just this week two separate announcements emerged about Linux tablets we've been waiting for.

Here's a quick rundown on the basics.

The PengPod: Now shipping

As I noted late last year, the PengPod surpassed its funding goal of $49,000 in its Indiegogo campaign, pulling in more than $72,000 instead.

GNOME and KDE

  • Community Time at Collabora [Ed: Mono]
  • Refocus
    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
  • Chakra GNU/Linux Users Get KDE Plasma 5.5.4 and Calligra 2.9.11 Office Suite
    Users of the Chakra GNU/Linux operating system were informed this past weekend by the project's maintainer Neofytos Kolokotronis of the availability of two essential software distributions for the rolling OS.
  • Konqi emoji shipped! and a little preview…
    It will end up in your KDE distribution soon !!! I am really very happy that many of you have appreciated my work.
