Tuesday, May 13 2008 @ 01:54 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Nexuiz runs on an improved Quake engine called DarkPlaces. The engine has been undergoing on-and-off development by Lord Havoc, the game's creator, for several years. On icculus.org, Lord Havoc says he developed a custom OpenGL-only engine for DarkPlaces, and other modifications that "support Windows WGL and Linux GLX and have greatly improved graphics and image quality."

Review: HP's Mini-Note Rivals Apple's MacBook Air Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

One thing missing, though, is a CD/DVD drive. With Linux, all your software is available over the Internet, so you may not even need to read or burn discs. But you can always add an external drive for around $50. An extra $50 gives you double the memory and a traditional 120GB hard disk drive.

Monday, April 28 2008 @ 01:59 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

With the arrival of Ubuntu's Hardy Heron last week, it is perhaps an understatement to say that conversation on the Linux blogs was plentiful.

Asus Eee PC 900 Linux Edition Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Friday, April 25 2008 @ 02:17 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

The 701 was first shown in June 2007 and was launched the following October. It quickly won plaudits for its compact, highly portable size and its low cost. We loved it, but like most Eee users we found the screen to be just too small. The sub-notebook's battery life also left much to be desired.

HP 2133 Mini-Note PC (Via C7-M 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 120GB HDD, Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 10) Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, April 17 2008 @ 02:12 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

While the Asus Eee PC and Intel's Classmate and Netbook platforms have convinced us that low-cost, low-power laptops can be genuinely useful, we still long for something a little more upscale than the plastic construction of those systems. HP's bold entry into the mininotebook market comes in the form of the 2133 Mini-Note PC, a 9-inch laptop with a tailored look and magnesium alloy chassis that starts at $599 for Windows (or $499 for Linux) and tops out at $749 with extras including Bluetooth, a Webcam, a 7,200rpm hard drive, and 2GB of RAM.

Linux examined: Ubuntu Hardy Heron Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, April 15 2008 @ 03:15 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

If there is a single complaint that is laid at the feet of Linux time and time again, it's that the operating system is too complicated and arcane for casual computer users to tolerate. You can't ask newbies to install device drivers or recompile the kernel, naysayers argue.

Review: Mac Mini Versus Everex MyMini PC Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, April 10 2008 @ 01:26 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Last week Everex called its diminutive desktop offering the gPC Mini. Then recently, the Linux distribution it shipped with was updated and took on a form suspiciously similar to an OS utilized by a plucky start-up from Cupertino. We grabbed one of these boxes (re-dubbed the MyMini PC by Everex) plus a newly retooled Mac Mini and took a hard look at the two. It’s true; the carpet and the curtains don’t quite match. Here's why. — Nate Ralph
