I have been looking at the Lindows Mobile PC which I could get for Aust $1165 from sub300.com. I have been trying to find some reviews by people who have purchased a Lindows Laptop but have not had much luck? I have seen a few posts that say describe upgrading the Lindows to Debian Unstable and it sounds quite easy. Just wondering if anyone has used this laptop and has any comments.
the first thing laptop mfgrs leave out is battery life. So, I checked
and it has 2 hrs max. so, that was a deal breaker for me. I have had a
little experience with lindows 3.0 desktop. It was based on stable I
think. And you could do some selective apt-geting. But from my very
limited stable->unstable attempt, it didnt work. Also, it had only root
logon. and it disabled virtual terminals, so you could not fix things if
they went very wrong. But the newer version may be better. BTW to you
have a link so that I can check outt he 'lindows upgrade' article.
