Hardware, Embedded Systems We already introduced Dell's new laptop wonder, the Z600, to you earlier this week. What makes this laptop special is that it contains a small ARM motherboard which runs a special version of openSUSE Linux, allowing for instant access to basic functionality like checking email, browsing the web, and playing multimedia files. What's news, at least for OSNews, is that research from Dell has shown that people spent 70% of their time in the Linux environment.

Suspending is like cheating

The OS has to boot fast, not relying on a battery.
I shutdown and boot up. I want an optimized boot process, but a complete OS every time.

You might want to try Haiku ;)

Personally, for quick mail sending/reading and visiting websites I prefer to use a mobile phone.

Tried the HAIKU alpha on 2 different computers (2 and 5 years old computers) and none boots through the desktop.
The older computer stays dark while the younger one at least shows the HAIKU text and some small pictures.

This said HAIKU has still a long way to go until it's usable for every day usage...
