Linux in your hand; from geeks only to consumer friendly mass market

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux is not new to the mobile phone world, 
| but in the past the majority of Linux-based 
| phones were sold in China or were feature 
| phones with “hidden” Linux builds, such as 
| the Motorola RAZR2 V8, MotoZine ZN5, and 
| Motorola ROKRs. Companies have taken the 
| power of Linux and are bringing that to the 
| mass market with these latest smartphones. 
| These Linux-based operating systems are 
| attractive to device makers because of the 
| free or relatively inexpensive licensing 
| agreements. We also see some of these high 
| end Linux-based operating systems being 
| quite open, primarily when looking at 
| Google Android and Nokia Maemo 5 and 6. 
| Palm’s WebOS is primarily a closed system 
| at this time.

Hands On Nokia N900 smartphone demo

,----[ Quote ]
| We managed to get a little quality time with the
| Nokia N900 smartphone running Maemo and Linux. This
| smartphone, sporting killer specs and 3G HSDPA for T-
| Mobile US and Europe should begin shipping in the
| next few weeks. Notice how quick the device is when
| switching between desktop screens and applications--
| the multitasking is very impressive thanks to 256
| megs of RAM and virtual memory that brings it up to 1
| gig of application RAM.

Nokia N900 Gets Full Review

,----[ Quote ]
| The Nokia N900 takes the functionality of the
| older Nokia Tablet devices and repackages them
| into a slimmed down PDA device that features some
| design similarities with the Nokia N97. So, we
| get a full QWERTY keyboard sans the tilted slide
| function, 3.5-inch touchscreen but with a higher
| resolution. However, the real added bonus is the
| powerful Linux Maemo OS. Needless to say, we
| can’t wait to get our hands on especially now the
| first full-on reviews are appearing.

My Linux is not your Linux
To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy! So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia, and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters, throwing feces at one another and beating their chests pretending to know something. My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love, of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the monkeyhouse of COLA) they remind me of myself: practical, freedom-loving, anti-corporate. Here in COLA however they remind me of monkeys or spoiled brats or worse, corporate sysadmins. My Linux is not your Linux. It is the human Linux that acknowledges that Linux involves human work to create, that although it is free you are not entitled to it, that although it is created in large part by volunteers, they deserve to be paid for their gifts with at least gratitude. And that monkeys and self-entitled brats and sysadmins never thank anyone. yarmfelder@yahoo.com writes: > To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy!
