It is much simplified (no powerpoint editing for eg.) and the hardware is thought through (two microphones), but the review is claiming that the software is still buggy."

A Linux Touchscreen computer for Seniors

Comments Filter:
  • They offer two models, both of which run a dual core Atom processor (low-end runs 1.8Ghz, high-end runs slower 1.6Ghz). Only 2GB of RAM should be OK for most Linux implementations (though they have a custom Linux stack so who knows how efficient it is while supporting a touch screen).

    These are basically Linux iMac clones targeted at 'seniors'. They market them as 'virus free', 'virus resistant', 'crash resistant' and 'upgrades for life'.

Money will say more in one moment than the most eloquent lover can in years.
