New from dell: an ubuntu linux laptop targeting developers - Fiber Optic Attenuator

Business,Business News,Business Opportunities
Specifically, through an effort known as Project Sputnik, Dell hasbeen working on a prototype open source laptop aimed at developers,based on Ubuntu Linux 12.04 Precise Pangolin and Dell s XPS 13 hardware. Sputnik is part of an effort by Dell to better understand andserve the needs of developers in Web companies, explained BartonGeorge, director of marketing for Dell s Web vertical, in a blog post on Monday. We want to find ways to make the developer experienceas powerful and simple as possible. And what better way to do thatthan beginning with a laptop that is both highly mobile andextremely stylish, running the 12.04 LTS release of Ubuntu Linux.

An Install Image Is Available The topic of Ubuntu has cropped up repeatedly in discussions with developers, Georgenoted. Not only that, but a fair number of developers havespecifically requested a laptop based on the free and open sourceoperating system, he said. To my knowledge, no other OEM has yet made a system specificallytargeted at devs, George wrote, so Dell figured it was time tosee what that might mean. Project Sputnik is a six-month effort made possible by an internalinnovation fund. Now available in an install image for the project are drivers and patches for hardware enablementalong with a basic assortment of tools and utilities; a softwaremanagement tool to retrieve developer profiles from GitHub iscoming soon, George said.

The project has already been working in collaboration withCanonical to resolve hardware issues involving brightness and thewifi hotkey; still being addressed are touchpad and multitouchsupport. The video below explains the effort in more detail. Your browser does not support iframes. 'We Have Big Plans' The vision for Project Sputnik is a Launchpad to the cloud, George said.

Among the possibilities for the developer-oriented machine is acommon set of tools from client, to test, to production, therebytying Sputnik via a common tool chain to a cloud back end poweredby OpenStack, he explained. Developers could create 'microclouds' locally and then push them to the cloud writ large. If Project Sputnik is successful, we have big plans for theeffort, George added, though he didn't explicitly address thepossibility of a consumer-oriented version. Still, the news is particularly for Linux fans given the report published by OMG!Ubuntu! today suggesting that Ubuntu will beincluded on fully five percent of the PCs that ship next year.

Is Linux dead on the desktop ? Sure doesn't sound like it to me.
