ABI: 163 million Smartbook shipments in 2015

,----[ Quote ]
| Qualcomm, Freescale, NVIDIA, Texas 
| Instruments, and other chip-makers are 
| pushing the smartbook concept pretty 
| heavily. Lenovo and HP are expected to 
| launch some of the first smartbooks in the 
| US in the next few months. And if you donât 
| get hung up on the âbookâ side of things, I 
| suppose you could make the case that iPad 
| is a smartbook without a keyboard.


Canonical Taps Enlightenment for Ubuntu ARM Devices

,----[ Quote ]
| The UI won't look a great deal different to 
| end users familiar with the Ubuntu Netbook 
| Remix. Bennett says that it's a "direct 
| clone of the UI found in the 9.10 Karmic 
| release on i386." Users testing Ubuntu 10.4 
| alphas can test the launcher now by 
| installing the netbook-launcher-efl 
| package. The most recent Ubuntu 10.4 alpha 
| release came out on Thursday, February 24.


A Prism for Jolicloud: Web-Centric Desktop Apps

,----[ Quote ]
| I recently bought a netbook and installed 
| Jolicloud, a Linux/Ubuntu distro designed 
| as a replacement for, or companion to, 
| Windows. Jolicloud was a revelation, 
| something fresh and new in the seemingly 
| snail-paced world of desktop computing. The 
| bold idea of Jolicloud is that the browser 
| is the operating system. It's all you need 
| and you don't need to even think about it. 
| The browser is a core service that supports 
| all applications but it can recede into the 
| background and let applications take the 
| foreground.



New Graphical Interface for Ubuntu on ARM

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux is the operating system of choice for
| devices with ARM processors. Unfortunately
| problems with graphics appear in most
| cases. Ubuntu wants to fix this with a new
| GUI.
| No matter if a smartphone, smart netbook or
| embedded device, most hardware with an ARM
| CPU is currently running Linux. It's
| natural that Ubuntu therefore wants a large
| slice of the ARM pie, but, like many GUIs,
| is running into resistance from graphics
| drivers that in many cases don't support
| direct rendering

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
