自介:

Sascha Pallenberg has been a leading proponent of the small form factor and mobile computing market for several years. With the rise of the netbooks he started his first mobile computing blog Eeepcnews.de back in December 2007, while he was still living in the US. After just 2 months he quit his job at his US startup and relocated to Taipei/Taiwan to cover the recent netbook news directly from its’ source. Netbooknews.de became a leading source for all the netbook related news, even though he is still blogging in German. With the help of Nicole Scott (former BnetTV.com), Joanna Stern (Laptopmag.com) and Lars Nilsson (former Fudzilla.com) he is going to launch Netbooknews.com in June 2009. A weekly vodcast about all the latest mobile computing news from the Asian hotspots.

摘要:

In the beginning of the netbook market, Linux netbooks had a huge momentum, especially due to the Xandros and Linpus distributions that got preinstalled on the first ASUS Eee PCs and Acer Aspire Ones. Unfortunately Linux couldn't keep up this momentum and Windows XP built up its' monopoly, even on this new and energetic netbook market. With new distributions like Moblin and Ubuntu Netbook Remix it seems that Linux might get a second chance but what comes next? Cloud computing is not only a buzzword, it's reality and distributions like Jolicloud are taking advantage of the unique netbook specifications.
