I am not a Linux guy, but for the millions of you who are fans of the open source operating system, here’s the good news. Fedora Linux, the popular open source Linux distro that was all the rage in the community before Ubuntu stole the show, is back with its latest release. The new Fedora 14 Linux distro comes with a number of improvements over the previous release. This includes enhanced remote desktop functionalities, quicker image loading and saving and support for a host of new programming languages. There is also a preview for the new virtualization technology. But the most significant addition is the support for MeeGo technology aimed at making the distro compatible on small screen devices like netbooks.

The title says it all, doesn’t it. Just days after the Chronic Dev Team announced a modified version of their Windows-only GreenPois0n jailbreak tool that will break into the iOS 4.1 platform on iPhones and other iDevices, they have announced that the jailbreak application variant for the Linux platform too is now available. This makes the OS X as the only platform that is yet to get a solution from the Chronic Dev Team. However, the team of jailbreakers have assured their users that the OS X version too shall be releasing soon. The exact date was not revealed,
“Mac release is being worked on. Some technical difficulties must be resolved. We have no ETA for the Mac release besides “soon”. Bad things seem to happen when we give ETAs.”
We will let you know when that happens.
Looks like yet another convertible tablet PC is set to make its entry to the markets soon. The American Federal Communications Commission is learned to be testing out the new Haier X220P Convertible tablet PC which indicates a possible launch in the US shortly.
It is not clear if Haier is planning on an international launch as well. According to reports, the new Haier X220P shall come with a 10.1-inch touch screen display that will render content at a 1024×600 resolution. Other specifications include a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, a 160GB Hard drive and an in-built 3G modem. In addition to this, the Haier X220P will also allow users to connect using its Wi-Fi. With a state of the art processor, you may have expected the device to come pre-installed with the latest OS platforms. Disappointingly, Haier X220 will come installed with Windows XP or Linux. Finally, the PC comes with a QWERTY keyboard that is connected with a swivel design so that users may fold the screen over the keyboard to be used as a tablet.
