Can Linux Save the UMPC?

Posted on Friday, July 20 2007 @ 06:27:05 CEST by

Getting back to the original question- saving the UMPC is a very difficult task. There is no doubt that Linux could work on the UMPC and that it could improve it while still offering a full-fledged operating system, but making it a success is another story altogether. The original idea of the UMPC, a flyweight travel companion that was smaller than your notebook and more affordable is something that has yet to be realized. With the pending release of Intel's MIDs and mobile Ubuntu there is hope for this form factor though. The problem still consists of explaining to people what the UMPC/MID can do and then getting them to understand why it is something that you would carry with you instead of a notebook, not something you buy instead of one.
