"It's not too often you hear of a pre-built Linux machine,
right? Sure some major vendors (brand-name PC manufactures) are
starting to jump on the Linux bandwagon to offer their own "Linux
solution" with their own fabricated components and pre-installed
distribution. But from my experiences, brand-name PCs are nothing
but trouble. Often opting for cheap, generic, run of the mill
components just to save a few dollars and give the illusion the
consumer is getting "more bang for the buck."
"This is where PogoLinux differs. Every workstation &
server is forged from high-quality third-party hardware chosen by
their engineers, specifically for the Linux OS. Personally I
like to build my machines from scratch, picking each component
individually. But some people may not be comfortable in doing so
and that is why I was quite please with PogoLinux and how they
handle business. Offering a default configuration of quality
brand-name hardware for the new-users and also alternative hardware
choices/upgrades for the experienced user to pick from, for each
product line. It's like building your own Linux machine from
scratch, but with suggestions."
"Recently, I had the opportunity to review the PogoLinux Kona
workstation at its default configuration. I was quite pleased with
the hardware inside the Kona; frankly, I was expecting less, given
this machine's low price. So I'll begin with a general overview of
the hardware on a basic Kona machine."
