Adventures with a SUSE Linux-Powered OQO Palmtop

Filed under
SUSE

After seeing the specs for the OQO model 01+ tablet palmtop PC, I knew I had to put SUSE 10.0 Linux on it and do a review. OQO currently offers only a Windows XP version.

Would SUSE even install? Would the tablet work? What are the challenges? Where would you use Linux on such a small package? Would Linux techies even be interested?

All good questions that you'd probably like answered.

This is my adventure of putting SUSE Linux on the little micro PC. I also carried the machine around the recent LinuxWorld Conference in Boston, for a few days.

To say the OQO/SUSE Linux combination is a "geek magnet" is to overstate the obvious.

Full Story.
