[News] GNU/Linux Sub-notebooks Invade Businesses

Netbooks Worm Their Way Into Businesses

| Jamrog brings a Linux-based Eee PC 1000 that he bought himself to HCC, 
| connects it to the school's network and does his work on the netbook. "No one 
| has scoffed yet," said Jamrog, who added that he and a full-time security 
| professor at the college are thinking about pushing to require students to 
| have netbooks.    


Netbooks: What's All The Fuss?

,----[ Quote ]
| Typically priced below $400, netbooks offer a diminutive form factor, usually 
| weighing less than three pounds and sporting 10-inch or smaller screens. 
| They're also known for their low-power processors, which pack less oomph than 
| those found in their notebook cousins but also promise longer battery life. 
| Most commonly, they come with Microsoft XP Home or Linux operating systems.    



Netbook users: Microsoft says three apps is enough

| It makes sense in pure business-school 101 terms, but I think our culture is
| turning away from such heavy-handed business strategies as this. Social
| media, participatory communities and the current financial crisis is giving
| strength to those companies, brands and individuals who make a fair, honest
| and authentic contract with their users. (Just look at our recent
| Presidential campaign.) I’m not sure a pop up window saying, “Sorry, You
| Can’t Launch Excel Right Now. Please Close Firefox or Upgrade Today” really
| creates that impression. But is that enough? Will Linux really be able to
| compete against Redmond? I think this policy may make it slightly easier, but
| honestly it’s a difficult challenge. David, get out your slingshot of
| computing freedom.


Netbooks Open Linux Window at BETT

| On the same stand a large screen showed off the design appeal of the latest
| Ubuntu. This includes multiple windows rotating or rescaling. As this is
| better understood some Netbook users may return to Linux. Asustek Chairman
| Jonney Shih has predicted that about 60 percent of Eee PCs to be shipped in
| 2009 will have Windows XP.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
