XCore's EduBook, a Netbook That Runs on AA Batteries

,----[ Quote ]
| Yes, it runs Linux.
| Before diving in to anything else, note 
| that this is a laptop built for running 
| Linux; the one I'm using is running Ubuntu 
| 9.4 (Jaunty), and others that I played with 
| briefly on the show floor were running 
| instead Barry Kauer's lightweight (around 
| 100MB by default) Puppy Linux. Though 
| Puppy's quite a nice OS, I stuck with 
| Ubuntu on the EduBook, because that's what 
| I'm most used to.

| believe over the next several years that
| could completely change around and that
| could be 90 per cent of the PC market," the
| ARM CEO, Mr. Warren East, says. "We see

| innovation and we want that innovation to
