The all-terrain, solar powered Linux sport utility laptop!

Today in Open Source: An Ubuntu-based sport utility laptop. Plus: Open source satellites and voting machines!

If you’re one of those folks who loves the great outdoors, and who needs to take a laptop with you, then you’ll dig the SOL from WeWi. SOL is a solar powered laptop that is built to withstand everything nature can throw at it.

Wow, I love the way this thing looks, to say nothing of the solar panels and general ruggedness. This is a laptop that was not made for sitting in a coffee shop or being toted back and forth the office. This sucker was made to penetrate deep into the wilderness, while still providing a good amount of computing power.
