Hardware, Embedded Systems If online articles and blogs are any indication of things, the number of Linux users migrating to, and satisfied with, Ubuntu GNU/Linux seems to be staggering. Given that, it was only a matter of time before a capable company had the resources to offer accessible, affordable Linux desktops and notebooks that delivered the way that Apple's products have. Colorado-based System76 sent us their Darter Ultra for review, and proved that there is an OEM hardware/software combination capable of being the primary PC for the general public.

To be clear: on the edgy unit I got, hibernate did work, it just gave an error on resume, and the internet connection restoration was shaky.


That kinda fits my definition of did not work. ;)

That said, if I hadn't just ordered a macbook, I would have considered the system76 unit here. I'm using ubuntu 7.04 (fiesty fawn is a dumb name) on my desktop now and it's quite solid.

Yes, that's why it's called feisty fawn ;)
