[SOLVED] Android tablet vs. Linux tablet, pros and cons of each one?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 25, 2013
I recently tested a friend's tablet that comes with a customized version of Debian preinstaled. The price of this tablet is actually very cheap, in comparison to the price other tablets are sold here, and its features are not bad wither: CPU: INTEL Atom N450 1.66GHz, RAM: 2 Gb DDR2 (800 MHz), HD: SSD 32 GB, WiFi, bluetooth, 11,6" screen, SD reader, two USB ports, camera and a wireless and wired keyboard (I think it can be charged by plugin it to the tablet). More information about the tablet here (in Spanish).
I was considering buying a not-too-expensive Android tablet (maybe a Galaxy tab of 7" or similar), but after seeing the Linux one I'm tempted to buy it. I think the only thing I could miss from Android is the Android Market (actually, I don't use it that much, but it has some nice applications).
So, my question is, which one do you think would be better: this Linux tablet, or an Android one? What are the pros and cons of each one? Any thoughts?

Replacing or Working with Windows CE 6.0 on Netbook Options are Sought!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 28, 2012
This looked like the most appropiate section being mobile since the inquiry here is about the not so likely replacement of the embedded and extremely limited Windows CE 6.0 or stripped to the core Windows 7 on a small Sylvania netbook having 512mb ram and a 2gb SSD.
The Joli OS in the Cloud will be one of the first alternates looked at since the IE is too limited to even log into social networks let alone more secure accounts due to not seeing any Java support. That offers two versions once that installs onto CE but runs the OS in the cloud and the full replacement installer which is likely to fail is the embedded CE is on rom chip.
The question here would be about any other lighter weight versions for any of the other smaller distros like ubuntu or Puppy, etc. that could be made to run along side CE or while booting live from a USB flash drive to run a distro live is also being looked at as well.
The netbook itself was a gift to someone who has never upgraded from XP let alon
Joli OS and Linux Games plus applications question
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 1, 2012
im looking into getting Joli OS, i never had a blackberry or anything to do with apps and im very curious what its like, as i cant afford a new phone, joli os looks awsome since i can do it from my pc
And the fact that i heard it has local files, and synaptic, and all that cool stuff is excellent because it seems i can still do my general linux stuff
But heres the issue, i heard that you need a local operating system ontop of joli os, but im unsure
so like, if i get joli OS, i still want to use my linux apps, like rythmbox, secondlife, nvidia graphics drivers, pulseaudio
secondlife requires alot of the codecs that ubuntu installs on installation when u select add extras, and packages from ubuntu restricted extras, and nvidia drivers
But i have no idea how to set that up, so i thought id come here for advice. on how to go about using jolicloud as an OS and still using all my linux programs
Monitor compatible with linux. Ubuntu, mageia, mint. etc
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 3, 2013
I am thinking of buying this monitor but I want to be sure that it will work ok with linux distros, ubuntu & mageia in particular. I saw a phillips monitor that i really liked. No mains output required plug & play via 2 usb's into tower, and it also had some great features. All set to buy until I read a review that said it did not work with Linux or mac.
I like this one so hope it will work with linux.
Samsung S22B300HS 21.5 Inch Widescreen HDMI LED Monitor.
If this is not suitable please could anyone recommend one. 20" to 22" wide Thanks. I understand that people may not want to commit to a specific model but just trying to get an idea if Linux in general will work with 22" widescreen, Led, HDMI monitors. Would I be better to stick to 22" but with VGA/ DIV cables.
I have spoken to several retailers, asking the question in general or citing specific models but their responses have been non commital to say the least.
Connect Android Phone to Linux (Ubuntu)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 27, 2012
I have a Sony Xperia S phone, running Android 2.3,
it has only internal memory 32GB.
When I plug the usb cable between the phone and my PC (ubuntu),
the file manager does not detect its memory.
In Windows, MTP driver is needed,
how about Linux?
What can I do?
Ubuntu 9.10 or Super OS or Linux Mint
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 8, 2010
I've already installed the Ubuntu 9.10 and, in the process of trying to learn more about the "How to's" of using it, I came across some other versions that created questions.
Another version is called the "Super OS" (hacktolive.org/wiki/Super_OS) that is, supposedly ver. 9.10 with lots of improvements/updates.
Another one, with a comparison to ver 9.10, is Linux Mint. (linuxbsdos.com/2010/01/16/linux-mint-8-vs-ubuntu-9-10/)
Is Super OS that much improved over the original ver 9.10?
Is Linux Mint really that much more "user friendly" but actually straying away from the Ubuntu that it is based on?
Since I am one that is not familiar with "writing" programs, and didn't start playing with computers really until Windough$ 95, would either of these be an easier to operate system than ver. 9.10?
If Super OS is much easier, since I've already done a dual boot, how easy would it be to maybe "upgrade" 9.10 to Super OS?
How to replace PC with Linux
location: linux.com - date: February 18, 2012
I know I am probably asking a question that has been answered many times over, but I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed and would quite like a simple explanation.
My father and I decided that my little brother didn't really need XP for flash gaming and math homework, so we thought that a nice light-wight Linux OS would ease the terrible lag that this PC suffers. So, in my noobiness, I decided to go to the Linux website, download TinyMe, and see how things turned out. The result has been me realizing just how little I know about computers in general. I have been through various manuals, including partitioning, Dual-booting, liveCd'ing, formatting, etc etc. I just want to get rid of everything on this computer (No, it has nothing of value), and replace it with Linux. Could someone please clear all this up for me? If you could, it would be greatly appreciated.
