Submission + - Xenon: An Inspired Web Project (daniweb.com)

dandart writes: "Back in October '08, I wrote "5 Things I Wish Linux Had" but never realized that it would inspire the heated debate (Read the comments) that it did. I also didn't realize that it would inspire an actual operating system. One of my readers commented briefly that he would take on the project. With the inspired words, "Alright then. I'll make you one," amongst the fray of negativity, a new system was born: Xenon"

Submission + - Will Lintel Replace Wintel and iStuff? (daniweb.com)

dandart writes: "Intel acquired Wind River for $884 million to boost Linux adoption in the Intel Atom market.

I see this as a major blow to what we techies have historically referred to as the Wintel market. Wintel refers to Intel systems running Microsoft's Windows software. We frequently talk about Wintel boxes and Wintel architecture and I'm sure that some of that will continue but now, with this acquisition, we'll soon refer to devices as Lintel to distinguish their Linux operating system from Windows on a particular piece of hardware..."

Submission + - It's COOL-ER with Linux (daniweb.com)

dandart writes: "Have you bought a Kindle or Kindle 2 yet? Don't--at least not until you check out the COOL-ER ebook reader. It's about the same size and weight of a Kindle--so what makes it so much cooler than the Kindle? It could be your choice of eight cool colors, its magical portrait/horizontal page display, its high resolution (800x600) display or its extremely long battery life (8,000 page turns--it only uses battery life when turning pages). More likely it's that the COOL-ER reader is over $100 less expensive than the Kindle!"
