[News] GNU/Linux Tablets Become More Common

Hash: SHA1

Where are the Linux tablets?

,----[ Quote ]
| In my opinion, the ideal OS for a tablet PC 
| would be a Linux-based OS running the Elive 
| distribution. This distribution would be 
| lightweight enough, yet have plenty of 3D eye 
| candy for a modern desktop. The Elive desktop 
| would be ideal for a touchscreen-based 
| hardware. Yes, this is me showing favoritism, 
| but if you really put some thought to it, the 
| E17 desktop is perfect for the touchscreen. If 
| youâve not experienced Elive, download a Live 
| CD of it and try it out. Once you have it 
| running, imagine it being used on a tablet PC. 
| The only hitch would be how to initiate some 
| of the compiz features without having the 
| keyboard handy. Of course, after seeing what 
| the Elive team has done so far, any hitches to 
| tablet migration would be minor.

Google Enters the Tablet Fray

| The Chrome OS, which runs on top of the
| Linux kernel, is a direct challenge to
| Microsoft's(MSFT Quote) dominance in the PC
| market and will also intensify competition
| between Google and Apple. Chrome is
| expected to launch in the second half of
| the year and is an extension of Google's
| Chrome Web browser. It will initially be
| targeted at netbooks -- and tablets.
