noteworthy applications and news for mobile Linux geeks. Here
is an extract of the monthly digest:
- laptopkernel containing all the patches required to run recent laptops
was initially released. Please support this project.

theft deterrent application not depending on a certain
operating system, which cannot be removed by replacing the harddisk

- The HP Linux laptop sold in Thailand got many attention. But
as CNETASIA reports analysts say this notebook will be a unique case
For other rumors about Linux laptop, PDA and
accessory support by manufacturers see

with a free operating system by some Linux geeks.
