| YOU MIGHT VERY well have used one of Linpus' 
| Linux distributions without even knowing about 
| it, as the company specializes in custom Linux 
| installations for a wide range of solutions, 
| least not netbooks. The company has also made 
| some customized versions of Moblin, but its 
| latest project is something that looks 
| extremely interesting, a version of Linux for 
| ARM based PCTVs.


What Happened to IBM's Linux Wristwatch?

| As reported by FreeOS.com, the Linux watch was 
| conceived at IBM's T. J. Watson research 
| center where different groups of researchers 
| are continually exploring the numerous 
| challenges that emerge in the field of user 
| interface design, power management, input 
| devices, wireless communication, sensors and 
| models for co-existences for pervasive devices 
| and wearables. A team of researchers with 
| skills in hardware design, Operating Systems, 
| displays, electronic and mechanical packaging, 
| industrial design and user interface design, 
| which was spread across multiple research IBM 
| sites worked together to develop the wrist 
| watch that would eventually run Linux and X11. 
| They were led by Chandra Narayanaswami and 
| worked persistently for about 18 months to 
| achieve this feat.



Linux evolves: TVs, smartphones, tablets

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux rules supercomputers. It's vitally
| important to servers. And, Linux is making
| gains on the desktop. Where Linux is really
| going to shine in the next twelve months
| though is in devices: tablets, smartphones,
| and TVs.
| For example, more than a dozen Apple iPad-
| like tablets made their first appearance at
| the Computex computer show in Taipei, Taiwan.
| The vast majority of these devices run
| Android Linux or other embedded Linuxes such
| as the latest MeeGo embedded Linux.
