Hacao Classmate PC lands in Vietnam

,----[ Quote ]
| With a 7” screen, its own version of Linux, 1GB of flash storage, a 900MHz 
| processor and 256MB of RAM it has landed in Vietnam for the low, low price of 
| $250, if you are a student. The screen has an 800×480 resolution and the 
| system has a 400MHz bus, I also left out the 802.11b/g WiFi that is stuffed 
| in there somewhere.    


Quote for the day:

"Don’t encourage new, cross-platform Java classes, especially don’t help get
great Win 32 implementations written/deployed. [...] Do encourage
fragmentation of the Java classlib space."

Students using PCLinuxOS in Vietnam

,----[ Quote ]
| Finally, I decided to test PCLinuxOS with my students. Wow, amazing. Finally 
| a Linux distro that the majority of my students actually liked using. It ran 
| faster than any of the other Linux distros they tried and easily connected to 
| the internet from inside the school (they like to read Yahoo 360 blogs in 
| class). They figured out how to use Konquerer to browse around the different 
| directories in their laptops without me even telling them. As with Macbooks, 
| the Desktop GUI was easy to learn. Thus, I decided to use PCLinuxOS.
