[News] ASUS Spin-off Runs GNU/Linux on ARM Sub-notebooks

Hash: SHA1

ARM-Based Pegatron Netbook Protoype

,----[ Quote ]
| Pegatron, a spin-off from ASUS, has been showing a Netbook powered an ARM 
| processor around. This particular model uses an ARM Cortex-A8 design found in 
| a host of gadgets, including the Palm Pre (same design, but not the exact 
| same chip). Running at a 1Ghz frequency, it is capable of playing 720p video 
| and run basic 3D applications. While Android isn't ready for Netbooks yet, 
| this Pegatron runs Ubuntu (Linux) just fine.      


Easy Netbook Linux

| Netbooks are all the rage at the moment and with a good Linux version 
| installed can wield serious power 
| When netbooks were first announced to the world there was significant 
| speculation that these would be fertile ground for Linux growth. In part that  
| was because the Asus EEE, one of the first netbooks, ran a version of Linux 
| and soon after so too did the likes of Acer's Aspire One.  



Researcher: Chrome to boost Atom to ARM switch in netbooks

,----[ Quote ]
| LONDON — Technology changes, including the introudction of the Chrome
| OS, will undermine Atom's grip on the netbook market during a
| recessionary time when people don't want, and can't afford, a second
| laptop just to carry around say market researchers, The Information Network.
| While Intel's Atom holds more than an 80 percent share of the
| 23.5-million netbooks sold in 2009 the ARM processor will to gain a 55
| percent market share of the 96.0 million netbooks sold in 2012,
| according to researchers.
| "We see two technology factors converging with the poor macroeconomic
| situation that will create a market for ARM - the release of the
| Cortex-9 microarchitecture and the emergence of cloud computing," said
| Dr. Robert Castellano, president of The Information Network (New
| Tripoli, PA). "Chrome OS is the first operating system built with cloud
| computing in mind."

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
