A month with Dell's Project Sputnik  View Printable Version 
Thursday, February 28 2013 @ 04:51 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HardwareI ordered the new Project Sputnik laptop from Dell to replace my six-year-old MacBook. It’s basically the most-tricked-out version of the XPS 13, running Ubuntu 12.04 instead of Windows 8. I won’t get into why I dislike Apple’s OS, but I run Linux on my desktop and on any server machine I login to, and I enjoy a consistent experience. The most appealing part about Project Sputnik, as opposed to installing Linux on any ol’ Windows laptop (or a MacBook, for that matter), is that it includes a Dell-managed PPA for the hardware. In theory, this means that Dell is committed to making sure that the laptop’s hardware “just works”.

Nvidia loses 10 million GPU order due to poor Linux support  View Printable Version 
Friday, June 29 2012 @ 05:04 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HardwareRecently, Linus Torvalds made it clear just how displeased he is with Nvidia. If his colorful language wasn’t enough of a confirmation, the familiar one-finger gesture he made certainly did. But while Nvidia can deal with public criticism (even from someone as influential as Torvalds), they’re probably having a harder time swallowing the hundreds of millions of dollars in sales they just lost due to poor Linux driver support.

Lexmark's Linux Secret  View Printable Version 
Sunday, April 04 2010 @ 10:32 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Hardware Another area of hardware support that has caused much grief for users has been with printer support. Printers are not nearly as complex as a modern-day graphics processor, but the different vendors have not been quick to offer up any Linux support -- and binary-only drivers frequently back the ones that do. There is one printer manufacturer though that as of last year has begun supporting Linux from top to bottom with their entire line-up of printers. Not only are they providing CUPS drivers, but also they are even printing Tux in the corner of every box they ship right besides the Windows and Apple logos. Do you know who we are talking about? Probably not, but it's Lexmark.

A Radical New Router  View Printable Version 
Saturday, July 11 2009 @ 04:07 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HardwareFrom /.:

A new router, designed by one of the creators of ARPANET, manages flows of packets instead of only managing individual packets. The router recognizes packets that are following the first and sends them along faster than if it had to route them as individuals. When overloaded, the router can make better choices of which packets to drop.
