"The smart mobile user shouldn't overlook Linux. The question
is, which distro should you pick? You'll get a different answer
depending who you ask.
"You'll probably be pointed in the direction of Arch for
performance, Debian for stability and Ubuntu if you want easy
access to the biggest collection of apps. If that's not enough
choice to make your head spin, Slackware has its fans too –
particularly among people who use older laptops.
"As you read on, we'll look at a range of different scenarios
that should be familiar to mobile users, and explore Linux distros
that will help you survive and flourish in these situations. To
make everybody's life easier, we'll limit ourselves to pre-packaged
live Linux distros. We'll also stick to live CDs as much as
possible throughout this tour."
