PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And here's to the good stuff. When HP bought Palm a few weeks ago, the computer giant made it very clear they are going to put the webOS on a tablet, and maybe even on a netbook. While it has never been a secret that the webOS actually runs just fine on x86, nobody ever tried to actually boot it on real hardware. Until now, that is - and it works, without any modifications.

Linux is only great on embedded devices, servers or on devices without X.org and associated cruft.

Says you. It's all a matter of opinion. I have been using linux for a decade and I wouldn't want any other desktop OS.

Same here, I've been almost exclusively using Linux since 2002 and I started using it in 1998.

I have to admit that in regard of high-speed graphics, you are right, X.Org still has to catch up, especially to Windows. But besides that, everything else works pretty much perfectly on all my hardware, out-of-the-box ;) .

And if I need to serious gaming, I can just reboot into Windows.
