Update on Miserware Beta - Power Saving on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| It’s well over a week now since I started using the Miserware MicroMiser 
| software. I have it installed on all the Ubuntu PCs we have at home and on 
| two laptops too. I have noticed no adverse effects from running the software. 
| In fact you really do forget it is there. (The Micromiser software is 
| packaged and available for easy install on Debian and it’s many derivatives, 
| Fedora, RHEL, and SLES too so you are not limited to just Ubuntu’s Linux)     


"We should dedicate a cross-group team to come up with ways to leverage Windows

System76 Serval Professional Notebook

,----[ Quote ]
| Finding a laptop that can run Linux is no longer much of a challenge. As we
| have shared in numerous netbook and notebook reviews, a majority off the
| shelf PCs shipping with Windows can easily be replaced with Linux and chances
| are most -- if not all -- of the components will "just work" on this
| open-source operating system, while ill-supported parts can usually be
| configured to work in just a few steps. For those looking to save time or
| avoid a potential headache, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, and other major vendors
| have been offering Linux notebooks for some time now. One of the smaller
| vendors though that has been offering Ubuntu Linux notebooks (along with
| desktops and servers) is System76 Inc. This Colorado-based company not only
| ensures their hardware is 100% compatible with Ubuntu Linux, but they also
| preload some popular software packages that are not installed by default on
| Ubuntu. In this review we are looking at the System76 Serval Professional
| notebook.
| [...]
| If you don't mind paying more for a notebook that ships with Ubuntu and is
| guaranteed to run nicely with Linux -- along with supporting a vendor that is
| centered around the Linux ecosystem -- the System76 Serval Professional is a
| notebook worth considering for your next purchase.


System76 Launches Biometric Ubuntu Linux Laptop

,----[ Quote ]
| As big PC companies like Hewlett-Packard finally push into desktop Linux,
| WorksWithU will give equal time to the industry pioneers that evangelized
| desktop Linux before it went mainstream. A case in point: System76 continued
| its long-term Linux commitment today by launching the Gazelle Ultra
| (pictured) — an Ubuntu laptop with some pretty slick hardware specs and a
| biometric fingerprint reader for security.


Review: ZaReason Makes Desktop Linux A Breeze

| The Bottom Line: If you need a basic, low-end PC without the hassles and

Talking Ubuntu Linux: Q&A with System76 President Carl Richell

,----[ Quote ]
| All About Ubuntu: What types of customers do you expect to purchase your
| latest Ubuntu servers?
| Richell: We are already providing servers to small businesses, schools,
| governments, and enterprises. The broad utility of Ubuntu as an operating
| system and the expanding capabilities of x86 hardware opens Ubuntu server
| products to a large and diverse market.

| servers featuring Ubuntu 7.10 Server Edition -- delivering a new choice in
| quality server platforms.


ZaReason's MegaLap is a desktop replacement with an Ubuntu twist

,----[ Quote ]
| MegaLap, a notebook computer from ZaReason, a company that builds and sells
| computer systems that run Ubuntu, is bound to give its owner bragging rights
| at any LAN party, especially with how loud the system can get. It has the
| hallmarks of on-the-go computing, while performing comparably to a desktop
| gaming system.
