Review: Ubuntu Mobile Edition

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall this version represents a good start toward making the Linux 
| operating system a viable alternative to Windows for these ultra portable 
| devices. You can follow the development on any of the Ubuntu mobile mailing 
| lists and IRC discussions listed on the UME wiki.   



Ubuntu Mobile Edition: Review

,----[ Quote ]
| The mobile Internet device (MID) space is one of the fastest growing
| platforms with new concept designs appearing every month. Nokia was one of
| the earliest vendors with a product (Nokia 770) in this space to ship with a
| Linux operating system (OS) and continues to see solid sales with the current
| model 810. New concept designs come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, and
| many sport a Linux OS.

| With my Q1 I purchased the leather case / USB keyboard accessory to make text
| entry easier. Open Office works just fine under UME, and I was able to enter
| and edit text using the keyboard with no issues. The USB keyboard also
| includes an "eraser head" type mouse that works just fine under UME. I did
| not try to connect a Bluetooth keyboard although this version is supposed to
| support Bluetooth devices.


Open source to 'blow mobiles open'

| McCabe said that the impending release of Google Android would provide
| a "wonderful catalyst" for the breakdown of proprietary software and hardware
| bundles from telcos. Other open source handset software includes the recent
| release of mobile Ubuntu.


Feeling the heat at Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| A couple of years ago you reiterated that IBM was Microsoft's biggest
| competitor and you said not just on the business side, but overall. If I ask
| you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?  
| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have
| to go with that.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
