Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"US-based Agenda Computing today launched a scheme to take on handheld computing giants Palm and Handspring with the introduction of a consumer-oriented palmtop device based on Linux."

"The 4oz device bundles all the key personal organiser functions you'd expect from a handheld: diary, to-do list, contact manager, email, calculator and so on, all of which can operate in parallel thanks to Linux's multi-tasking functionality. And, shipping for $149, it's priced right on a par with its main rivals."

"...character recognition probably won't be the VR3's key selling point: it's more likely to find favour - at least among the geek community - as a Linux box - it runs version 2.4 of the kernel - onto which users can transfer open source Linux apps compiled for the MIPS CPU. The VR3's graphics are based on the XFree86 X Window server."
