By demonstrating Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin running on an ARM-based server, Calxeda has taken an important step in bringing the low-power RISC-architecture chips to the server market
After having looked at three more or less "traditional" Linux desktops on a netbook - Ubuntu Unity, KDE Plasma Netbook and Jolicloud - now I am going to look at a very un-traditional desktop, MeeGo. Descended from the Moblin project, and now being developed jointly by Intel and Nokia, MeeGo is intended to be a user interface for the entire range of mobile products, including netbooks, tablets, smart phones and more.
The obvious first choice in loading Linux on my new Samsung netbook is the Ubuntu Netbook Edition. This should be particularly well-suited, because UNE was originally developed specifically for Intel Atom based netbook, and although it has been improved over the past couple of releases so that it works on others (such as my HP 2133 Mini-Note), I believe that it still works "best" on Atom-based systems.
The latest version of Moblin, the Intel-sponsored Linux distribution for Atom-based netbooks and nettops, includes a new web browser and allows Bluetooth pairing
ZDNet UK spoke to Intel's Imad Sousou at this year's Open Source In Mobile conference in Amsterdam, to discuss the evolution of the chipmaker's Moblin Linux distribution
The chipmaker will work with Google on the Chrome OS in the same way it contributes to other Linux distributions, which take in parts of Intel's Moblin code
We take one of Intel's new 34nm SSD drives for a spin and find it a worthy hard disk replacement, delivering massive speed jumps when loading software. But watch out for a penalty when writing data.
I received my first OEM Convertible Classmate PCs late last week from CTL Corporation. My previous Classmates had been various demo units supplied by Intel (with one still going strong running Ubuntu and the Intel Linux software stack); these 6 "2go PCs" were standard fare and are being used in pilots around the district, giving teachers the end of the year and/or the summer to be thinking about curricular uses for our larger rollout in the fall.
A look at Intel's low-cost, tablet-format netbook, with Ubuntu and other technology designed to go with it, at the Bett show in London
Freescale has unveiled an ARM-based, Ubuntu-toting netbook reference design, claiming it will bring cheap internet devices to the younger, more widget-centric generation
James, Kevin, and I spent a bit more time than planned talking about the upcoming iPhone 3G on MobileTechRoundup show #138, but we eventually did move on to talk about lots more in the world of mobile tech. I talked about my experiences with upgrading the Nokia N78 over the air and James is going to try it out soon too. How much can be said about WiMAX and how much will it cost? Kevin let me know about Ubuntu MID Edition and I may actually load it on my Fujitsu U810 since the Intel A110 processor is supported. Great news that the public beta of Opera Mobile 9.5 will soon be available for Windows Mobile and UIQ owners. We also introduced listeners to the Nerd Club.

The momentum behind mobile Linux is accelerating because several communities -- and commercial giants -- are finally backing it.Despite earlier efforts from pioneering companies like MontaVista, Lineo and Access, the open source operating system has always taken a back seat to proprietary mobile operating systems such as Nokia-backed Symbian, Microsoft's Windows Mobile, RIM's Blackberry and Apple's MacOSX for the iPhone.

A researcher claims that Microsoft and some Linux vendors have put small businesses at risk with their slow reaction to a vulnerability in Intel's hyperthreading chip technology
Operating system vendors were given two months notice before a serious security flaw was made public but some have yet to resolve the issue, a security researcher has claimed.Colin Percival detailed the vulnerability -- which affects versions of Intel's CPU that use a technology called hyper-threading -- at a conference on May 13.
