Thoughts on Gnome 3 & Fedora 16 Linux

Recently one of the people I've deployed Linux for came to me and wanted to purchase a new PC to replace a spare Pentium 4 PC they had sitting around that was still running Windows 2000. They had started to use the Windows 2000 PC after having it sit for a couple years, and soon found that it was not able to keep up with today's websites and other activities.

Details emerge that the Vulcan FlipStart is actually a real device

The Vulcan FlipStart ultramobile PC is one of a few devices, like the DualCor CPC, that were announced a couple of years ago and then became vaporware that only had occasional rumors bringing it back to life. According to a Crave article it appears that the FlipStart is actually going to be released soon. The Vulcan FlipStart E-1001S is a full Windows XP PC similar to the Sony UX series, but with a flip-open display revealing a keyboard rather than a slide-up display. Rumored specs have the device sporting a Pentium M CPU, 30GB hard drive, 512MB RAM, 5.6 inch 1024x600 display, and EV-DO WWAN support. For the US$1,999 price it better also have integrated WiFi and Bluetooth.

I was amazed and somewhat jealous - between his two blogs on this he got 1,796 talkback comments, most of them polite.
