Origami UMPC runs Linux!
The Ultra Mobile PC, Microsoftâ€™s new ultra-ultra-portable personal computer, apparently has a few new tricks up its sleeve that Microsoft neglected to tell anyone. In their testing of a prototype UMPC, UMPCOrigami found that Samsungâ€™s engineers, awaiting the â€œofficialâ€ operating system from Microsoft, had taken matters into their own hands and installed Linux in Windowsâ€™ place. Refusing to name the distribution used in the test, the team managed to proudly display Tux at 800 x 400 and loaded up the GNOME Desktop Environment with no trouble. These new UMPCs will contain a 1 GHz Celeron M, Pentium M, or VIA C7-M x86 processor with 256MB RAM and a 30 or 60 GB hard drive.read more | digg story
