[News] Google's Linux O/S a Headache to Microsoft on Sub-notebooks

Hash: SHA1

Microsoft hands the victory to Chrome OS

,----[ Quote ]
| Today marks the knee of the great curve of Microsoft's decline, it is 
| downhill fast from here. The inflection point went almost unnoticed in 2003, 
| but this time it is obvious to even the most myopic observer. The garbage 
| scow named SS MS was just holed, and it's listing badly.   


What? Can’t take a bit of competition?

,----[ Quote ]
| So now the IT media world just went wild over Google’s Chrome OS 
| announcement. Comments are coming in from all over, some overly optimistic, 
| some dismissive. All of these are speculative at best, and none of them carry 
| a lot of weight as Google hasn’t even done a code drop yet, much less a 
| release.    



More about Moblin on the Nettop (Part 3)

,----[ Quote ]
| So, there you have it, a somewhat less than brief overview of the Moblin
| desktop.


Ion-based Linux nettop soars in review

| The nettop also provides VGA, DVI, and HDMI video ports, a gigabit Ethernet
| port, and audio and PS/2 connections, says ZaReason. A variety of Ubuntu 9.04
| Linux distros, detailed in the table below, are available pre-installed.


Moblin on the Nettop - First Steps

,----[ Quote ]
| The desktop and menus are significantly different than any of the "typical"
| Linux distributions, such as Ubuntu, Mandriva, Fedora or openSuSE. I don't
| even find them to be much like the Ubuntu Netbook Remix - if anything, my
| first impression of the desktop is better than it was with UNR, I find it to
| be less cluttered and more intuitive.


DIY Dual Atom Nettop System

,----[ Quote ]
| Wow! It booted right up! Ubuntu saw all the hardware just fine, and even
| reported the CPU as a Quad-Atom system! Intel says that the hyperthreading in
| the Atom causes the Dual CPU to appear as four processors, so that is normal.
| I went ahead and installed Ubuntu, and was finished with that in 15 minutes,
| as usual. Boot the installed system, do my normal configuration and package
| installations, and it looks very, very good. Programs start and run quickly,
| including Firefox, Thunderbird and OpenOffice.org.


Acer Ubuntu nettop to get quiet storage switch

| Acer's Nvidia Ion-based micro desktop PC, Revo, will go on sale in the UK on
| 5 May, with Ubuntu Linux among the available operating systems.


Shuttle offer now Power-saving Nettop with SUSE Linux Operating System

,----[ Quote ]
| Expansion with program packages is possible at any time by a
| 1-Click-Installation from the openSUSE website to meet individual
| requirements. “The resource-saving requirements of Linux are ideal for
| Nettops.”, said Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer
| Handels GmbH.


All-in-one Nettops resurrecting desktop market

,----[ Quote ]
| A category long dominated by Apple's $1,200 iMac is suddenly rife with
| nice-looking imitators that pack less power than traditional Windows
| desktops, but are also gentler on the wallet. They're a subcategory of
| desktop PCs called Nettops, and, like Netbooks, they're generally defined as
| a computing platform powered by the Atom processor that runs either Windows
| XP or a version of Linux. Combined with the all-in-one form factor and a
| smaller screen than most desktops (between 15 inches and 19 inches), they're
| essentially the Netbooks of the desktop category.
