Chuckle. The world loves small cheap computers and the tablet is where consumers will have a feeding frenzy in 2012. Google is expected to release a 7″ tablet soon in competition with Amazon’s Kindle. This year what you can get for under $200 will put to shame many old-style PCs: price, mobility, weight, size, cuteness, etc. I have pockets that will hold a 7″ tablet. Probably the glove-compartment of my car could hold one. I could have them laying about on multiple flat surfaces… Think of the possibilities. As in every market, one can spend $600+ on stuff with very similar functionality but, “Why bother?”. You can buy two or three for the price of one… This will surely take a bite out of Wintel. Who needs to “go to the PC” for something that’s within arm’s length wherever you are?

My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. I have been blessed by working in schools where students and school systems have benefited by good, modular software easily installed in most systems.
I have shown GNU/Linux to thousands of students and hundreds of teachers over the years and will continue in some way doing that until I die in spite of the opposition.
