The Asus Eee PC Effect Just Got Bigger

Filed under
Linux
Hardware

Glyn Moody: I am of the view that the Asus Eee PC represents both a new class of ultraportable, ultra low-cost computers, and a huge opportunity for GNU/Linux. For the first time, a system running free software has really caught the imagination of the public - just look at the comments on this user forum to get a sense of the real enthusiasm of Eee PC owners.

Hardware
Reviews

techtree.com: Sub-notebooks or Ultra Mobile PCs (UMPCs) have been around for quite a while now. Most of the sub-notebooks that were in the market till 2006, however, belonged in the premium segment, making people think twice before investing in one of theses. Then in 2007, Asus changed all that. We're sure you'll want to know what it's like, and what we think of it, having spent a while using and testing it.

Do Linux Users Care About Freedom?

Filed under
OSS

bytesfree.org: Over at the TuxToday blog, there’s a post about Linux users not caring about freedom - because they’d rather just use Adobe’s Flash plugin in lieu of Free Software like Gnash. Or they think Richard Stallman and the FSF are morons who are hurting the Open Source movement.

Filed under
MDV

linsec.ca: As usual, I take a day or two when a new Mandriva version is in RC status to install and play around with it. Every release since I’ve had the Libretto, there is always something that needs to be tweaked or that just doesn’t work out quite right.

Filed under
Linux

linux-watch.com: If you need to repair PCs, even if you don't use Linux as a rule, you should have a Linux repair CD. These self-booting Linux distributions give you all the software tools you need to bring all but the deadest computers back to life. The best of these distributions is, hands-down, SystemRescueCd.

Absolute FreeBSD 2nd Edition review

Filed under
BSD

thejemreport.com: There aren't many FreeBSD books on the market -- compared to the number of Linux books, anyway -- so it's important that the few extant titles be superbly written and technically accurate. I was really looking forward to reading Absolute FreeBSD 2nd Edition because I'd heard such great things about the aged first edition.

It is a non-technical essay exploring the obstacles I encountered, my options, and the methods I used to achieve my aim. It was written partly to give the information, but also with the hope that readers will both enjoy and be amused by the story of the "battle of KMail" that was ultimately won against "incredible odds". Links to the earlier articles discussing problems with KMail 4x are given at the end.
  • [GSoC] Kdev-Embedded, Debugging and programming embedded systems
    The actual embedded system word depends on closed-source IDEs and libraries, with high monetary value and deprecated functionalities. Programmers that would like to use ARM based boards without paying for an IDE will have problems setting up such development ambient and synchronized toolkits. The main idea of this project is to provide a plugin integrated with KDevelop to help the debugging and programming process of embedded systems like AVR, ARM and x86 based boards.
