Linux on DeX beta review: almost perfect portable Linux

What Linux or open source geek has never dreamed of being able to access their beloved computer from anywhere? And no, not just through a remote command line shell. Ever since phones have become more than just communication devices and veritable computers in our pockets, the dream of a Linux smartphone and a portable Linux computer may have been in many users’ minds and hearts. From Nokia’s Debian-based Internet tablets and N900 phone to Ubuntu’s discontinued Ubuntu Touch Convergence, that dream has never been completely fulfilled. Samsung’s Linux on DeX, still in beta, arguably has the biggest chance to deliver that. That is, if Samsung actually sticks to it and goes all the way.
