PCLinuxOS 2008 on my ThinkPad T61

Filed under
PCLOS

temporaryland.wordpress: A few weeks ago I wrote about my experiences installing several different distributions on my ThinkPad T61. One of the distributions I tested was PCLinuxOS 2007 and there were a couple of small issues. With the recent release of the 2008 version I thought it would be good to write about how this new version works on my laptop. However, that could be summarized in just one phrase:

Project Halium Seeks A Unified Mobile GNU/Linux

New forks of GNU/Linux come out all the time, but some, like the newly unveiled Project Halium, actively seek to unite a given landscape. In this case the mobile world. Rather than being yet another version of Linux on mobile devices, like SailfishOS or Ubuntu Touch, Project Halium’s goal is to create a base that anybody can work off of to integrate all sorts of Linux code into the Android stack smoothly. Ideally, Project Halium wants to not only build out a base framework that anybody can use to hook their Linux project into Android’s soft underbelly of code and run it on an Android device, but they want to be the de facto example of such, in much the same way that saying the word “Linux” out in public will make many people immediately think of Ubuntu.

While the previous two questions were a bit philosophical, this month we'll keep it fun. Read more
