Keepin' it real fake, part CXXVI: Jointech's $99 JL7100 rips Eee PC in spectacular fashion

The Kira 100 was a decent Eee PC knockoff, but at just north of $475, there was literally no purpose in picking it over the genuine product. The Jointech JL7100, however, really makes ASUS' darling look mighty unnecessary. Okay, so maybe the fact that this thing relies on WinCE 5.0 rather than, you know, a bona fide laptop operating system is a bit disappointing, but there are sacrifices to be expected here.

[The FOSS angle? A Dutch news site states that this "laptop" will also be available with some unspecified Linux OS - Sander]

Dell E and E Slim revealed, taking on Eee and Air in one fell swoop

We got a nice helping of slides dropped on our virtual doorstep this evening, fleshing out Dell's upcoming netbook -- which they seem to be calling the "Dell E." Um, Eeenteresting name choice, but that doesn't seem set in stone, and there's plenty else going on here to ponder over. Dell's breaking the Dell E into two device types, a 8.9-inch model clearly meant to take on the Eee 900, and the 12.1-inch "E Slim" which actually looks positioned to take on the MacBook Air and X300. Perhaps most interesting is that all of these run Linux and Windows XP, and while it's not clear if there's a full-featured Linux OS onboard, there does seem to be an instant-on, Foleo-esque Linux included on all of them called BlackTop.

Open Source Diva: Stop Whining, Start Doing

Don't complain about your situation, do something about it. That's the gist of what Danese Cooper, senior director of open source strategies at Intel, said in her keynote at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention here. Cooper said her talk, entitled "Why Whinging Doesn't Work," was initially written for women, and she gave a version of it at a women's conference recently. Cooper said she came up with the idea for the talk after receiving an email from Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical Ltd., saying 'Can you girls please stop whinging about this?'"

WordPress, one of the most popular blog applications, suffers the same fate as many other open source projects: Users often delay upgrades despite a steady release cycle. That's because upgrading WordPress carries the risk of losing your virtual personality in the case of a botched upgrade. The WordPress Automatic Upgrade Plugin (WPAU) makes the upgrade process much simpler, quicker, and safer by taking care of all the intricate steps.

Survey: Economy Pushing Users to Open Source

Results of a recent poll show that the stagnant economy may be leading more and more organizations to adopt open source software to save on licensing fees. - In the first annual survey of its membership and other open source software and services companies, the Open Solutions Alliance (OSA) found that the stagnant economy may be helping to push the growth in open source adoption. In a survey of more than 100 of its member organizations, the OSA found that 83 percent said that expect to see a year-over-year increase in revenue in 2008 from open source related software and services.

CrossOver Games 7.1.0 Released

I am happy to announce that we have now released version 7.1.0 of CrossOver Games, for both the Mac and for Linux. This new version is largely an incremental improvement; it fixes a range of bugs in a number of games. It also includes a full merge with the Wine 1.0 code base, so this is now a 'post Wine 1.0' version of CrossOver Games.

Opening the Cellwaves

How long before the carriers and the FCC admit that the new transmission medium for radio is the cell system? And how long before they also recognize that the cell system is properly part of the Net's infrastructure and not just cordless telephony with messaging tacked on?

  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Community
It would seem that some of the premiere Linux News sources didn't think this effort was "newsworthy". Even though they said they would support the effort early on...they didn't. We didn't ask them for money...just ink and bytes. Even after saying they would cover it, they didn't... Now let's take a look at who did and didn't keep their word.
