First look at HP Mini 110 Mi edition

| Those who don't mind the oversimplified and somewhat 
| older Ubuntu as the pre-installed operating system on 
| the netbook will be able to perform all the common 
| computing tasks, but for those who'd prefer something 
| newer and more cutting-edge, the latest Karmic alpha 
| offers decent hardware support for the netbook. With 
| the hardware specifications much superior to the Eee 
| PC 900, I find HP Mini a much better value for money. 
| The final rating? Eight stars out of ten.


Xtra Ordinary OS Review: Better than Ubuntu!

,----[ Quote ]
| This past weekend, I tried out the Xtra Ordinary OS 
| for the XO from On-Disk. This Deb-XO distribution 
| really is an extraordinary full featured operating 
| system for adult users of the One Laptop Per Child 
| computer. 



Ubuntu'd HP Mini 1000 Mi Launched

| We don't know if Verne Troyer's into the whole netbook scene or the open
| source movement, but if he is, he can now order HP's shagadelic Mini 1000 Mi.
| Sporting a 9-inch screen, the pint sized mobile PC gets randy with the Linux
| community by trading in Microsoft's Windows XP for a customized version of
| Ubuntu.



HP offers Linux home server

| HP has unveiled a Linux-based home media server at half the price of its
| Microsoft-based MediaSmart model.


KDE 4.0 on HP 2133 Mini-Note

| Last week HP announced it's Mini-Note PC with preloads of SUSE Linux
| Enterprise Desktop 10. Our heros of the Mobile Devices Team have worked the
| last weeks on that. The Mini-Note is available in different configurations
| starting at $499 (that would be only 313 Euro if applied for Europe without
| surcharge). All editions share the form factor, the nearly full-size keyboard
| and the nice display (1280x768). So I had to lend one from Mobile Devices
| team and play with it.


HP Media Vault 2100 Linux Server Reviewed: One Kick-Ass Little Penguin

,----[ Quote ]
| In the end, this product isn't just another NAS, but a bold statement that HP
| is making, that it doesn't have to be saddled by the rough riders of Redmond
| when it can build (license?) its own practically identical box at a lower
| cost. Now I know that there are some things that you can only do with a
| PC-like server running a full OS, but honestly, what are they? I mean, do
| most people, even die-hard server-needers, give a crap? I want to know from
| you folks: Why bother with Windows Home Server when the Linux-based
| alternatives are on the surface equally friendly, equally powerful andâoh
| yeahâhalf the cost?
