Linux Well, it's been a while since we've opened this particular jar (box is not historically accurate) owned by Pandora. Desktop Linux... Yes, that ever elusive readiness of the desktop that is Linux-powered. Some story on ComputerWorld argues that the desktop Linux dream is dead, and apparently, the story is causing some stir on the web. Well, paint me pink and call me a lightbulb, but of course desktop Linux is dead. However - who gives a flying monkey? Linux is being used by more people than ever!

Lot of laptops are coming with Splashtop. A fast start Linux. Meego will provide software to Splashtop
I recently bough HP Mini 210 netbook (1.83Mhz Atom470 with 2GB ram).
It has splashtop.
But it is almost non usable. Browser occasionally hangs for a few seconds. I just type url and it appearing only after annoying delay. It has a problems with national text encoding. So I just disabled it.
BTW W7 runs fine on it.
