My rubbish Ubuntu Linux experience

After a severe buffeting in response to my tongue-in-cheek, winky-eyed ;) blog about how Ubuntu Linux is rubbish ("amateur", "user error", ow), I have learned from my errors. Suffice to say, I have had a rubbish Ubuntu Linux experience.

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

My first experience with mobile Linux was with a Sharp Zaurus SL-5500 I bought back in 2003. It was very customizable with apps and functionality and you could change the ROM on it rather easily to fit your needs, but it also required you to spend hours and hours tweaking and refining it to get it to work just right. When I heard that we would see more Linux-based mobile operating systems I didn't think they would amount to much because consumers seem to want products that work even if they don't have the most powerful functions (as we see with the iPhone). I am pleased to now see that smartphone operating systems based on Linux look to be the most powerful, customizable, flexible, and consumer friendly of all platforms we see in the market. We are seeing some wonderful devices running the Palm WebOS, Google Android, and Nokia Maemo operating systems with the Palm Pre, HTC Hero, Verizon Droid, Nokia N900 , and many more.

I've been going in circles for a while now, trying to get far enough along on something that I could write it up. Since I still haven't managed that, I think it is time to pass along a few notes and experiences from those circles...

First Intel MID now available for $699

There was a lot of Intel MID (Mobile Internet Device) news and demos at CES back in January, but we are just now starting to see them become available. Jenn from Pocketables posted that the Aigo P8860D/Gigabyte M528 MID is now shipping from Japan for US$699 with free worldwide shipping. The device has been on ebay, but this is the first official reseller carrying the device. I haven't read anywhere that other MID devices are coming soon with most speculation showing 2009 availability. With devices like the iPhone/iPod Touch and Nokia N810 I am not sure there is a real need for a device like these, but then again with Linux or Windows XP your browser experience should not be limited like it is on all of these existing handheld devices.

Can Ubuntu win the OS beauty pageant?

Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, has thrown down the gauntlet to his merry band of open source followers: Make Ubuntu as pretty and ultimately better looking than Apple's Mac OS.eWeek's Darryl Taft quotes Shuttleworth (Techmeme):"The great task in front of us over the next two years is to lift the experience of the Linux desktop from something that is stable and robust and not so pretty, into something that is art.
