Filed under
Hardware Everex makes a lot of low-cost systems these days; including the CloudBook. This laptop is a full-size 15.4″ model running gOS Linux version 2. It’s specs are relatively unimpressive but at $400, it’s hard to complain.

Shift Linux 0.6 Review

Filed under

I did not seen any reasoning or logic for creating Shift Linux. What the project website describes as need is the need for gnome/KDE/fluxbox theme, not an Ubuntu derivative. I tried really hard to find at least some other difference but failed. Shift Linux just provides an additional theme, and as a matter of fact, an ugly theme.

Linux Review - Linux Mint 4 "Daryna"

Filed under

linux-exploration.blogspot: Linux Mint 4 "Daryna" is a unique distribution. It is based off of the popular and powerful Ubuntu, and uses GNOME for its window manager. These two things make GNOME look great. Or, I should say, makes GNOME look like Windows.

DreamLinux 3.0 RC1

Filed under
Linux I've toyed with DreamLinux before (2.2) so I felt inclined to give the RC1 of DreamLinux 3.0 a go. I've always had an interest in DreamLinux because of the interface; I like the OSX feel they've deliberately aimed for and I appreciate there are a lot of users who also like this theme.

Everex CloudBook Review

Filed under
Hardware Starting at a mere $400, the Everex CloudBook marks the latest entry to the expanding world of UMPC-type subnotebooks at affordable prices. With a 7-inch display, 1.2 GHz processor, and 30 GB hard drive, the CloudBook certainly doesn't make a very good desktop replacement computer, but it does look like one impressive little road warrior.

The Asus Eee PC Effect Just Got Bigger

Filed under

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.

Asus Eee PC 4G

Filed under
Reviews 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 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.

ura and the Challenges of Open Source Design

Elio Qoshi is the person behind ura, a fascinating design studio dedicated to improving design in free and open source projects. As part of that mission, ura works with projects of all budgets. When we talk about open source, we’re usually talking code first and then—maybe—documentation second. Design is often an after-thought.
