Original OSNews Interviews OSNews "sat down" with Linspire CEO Michael Robertson for a Q&A about his company's efforts as the banner-carrier for Linux-on-the-desktop. We discussed the upcoming Linux Desktop Summit in San Diego and the perceptions and realities of the obstacles to widespread desktop Linux use. Linspire also extended a special offer to OSNews readers: a free download of Linspire and a 30 day CNR subscription, so put yourself in Granny's shoes (not literally, please) and give it a try. Correction: The free offer expires on January 15.

Hibernate support
by Sam Katz on Wed 5th Jan 2005 17:19 UTC

I am new to Linux, relatively. I took a class in Linux CLIs (bash), and have learned a lot through reading.

My question is that I almost bought the $799 laptop when it was offered. Kevin said you guys were still working on the Power Management for laptops.

You now say Lindows (through an updated kernel) can put the laptop to sleep. But can it hibernate a laptop?

My Windows machines never did that very well. There's always one stubborn application that thinks the machine is shutting down (like.. oh, Microsoft Word.)
