I guess I am a geek because I knew RMS had a notebook like this so that he could use only Free Software on his PC.“Lemote Yeeloong 8089B 8.9" opensource laptop Loongson CPU inside mini notebook computer linux pc for geek coder” It’s kind of cute and definitely small enough to carry around while travelling. I think it’s a fine example of “small cheap computers”, something minimal but functional. With 1gB of RAM, this could do a lot of browsing or word-processing. With only 160gB of storage, it’s not likely to be the centre of your universe without some auxiliary storage. The processor(Loongson 2F(800-900MHz)) is whimpy so you would have to be patient. For a geek this could be a desirable buy simply for the novelty and purity of software.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. 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. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
