Linux on Netbooks - Hope for the Future

,----[ Quote ]
| But I still suspect that "Vista with 
| Lipstick" will not work as well as a good 
| Linux distribution on typical netbook 
| hardware. Even more importantly, while 
| Microsoft has been busy the past couple of 
| years trying to put the lipstick on Vista, 
| various Linux groups have been improving 
| netbook-specific versions. The result is 
| things like Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10, which 
| I think is rather nice (and a huge 
| improvement over UNR 9.04), Moblin, which I 
| absolutely hate but apparently it is very 
| good for other types of users, and the KDE 
| netbook version, which is still in early 
| development but the early versions of it on 
| Mandriva and Kubuntu look very interesting.


Windows 7 is 'Restrictive' for Netbooks, Claims Linux Rival

| But Shuttleworth contended today that right 
| now, Ubuntu's "story is pretty good" for 
| peripheral support, pointing to smartphones 
| as the biggest remaining challenge.



  Arm Uses Laptops to Protect Mobile Phone Turf From Intel

,----[ Quote ]
| Though the Arm architecture can run Linux,
| including a distribution from Ubuntu,
| Microsoft has said its upcoming Windows 7
| operating system will not support the Arm
| architecture.

| Linux computing is taking off, and a lot of
| people are happy doing web browser based
| computing, and accessing office and other
| applications in the cloud, he added.



Intel talks Linux, netbooks and rivalry with ARM

,----[ Quote ]
| [As a] release from an open-source perspective,
| it's a milestone more than it is a product release â
| product releases come from OS vendors and OEMs [manufacturers].
| Soon you will start to see OEMs shipping netbooks with Moblin.
| You will see an announcement over the
| next week or two.


New 2-GHz ARM Chip Heads for Linux Devices

,----[ Quote ]
| Embedded core designer ARM Ltd. on Wednesday announced
| a 2-GHz version of its Cortex-A9 microprocessor that may
| eventually appear in smartphones and smartbooks.
| ARM will deliver the core IP itself during the fourth
| quarter, so any products based on the technology will
| likely have to wait until the new year.


Linux Foundation the latest in ARM's web of mobile alliances

,----[ Quote ]
| ARM, whose processor designs are used in the vast
| majority of mobile devices, is increasingly becoming
| a power broker in the mobile web world, allying with
| a range of larger partners to create an open platform
| that is geared to the ARM architecture, rather
| than Intel's x86. The latest is the Linux
| Foundation, the non-profit organization that
| recently took on responsibility for Intel's own
| Linux system, Moblin.
