On the back of the growing popularity of tablet devices the One Laptop Per Child project is now hoping to produce a sub-$100 tablet device.
The Ubuntu team this morning announced the release of a beta edition of its Netbook Remix 9.04 operating system. Netbook Remix has a customised interface designed to be easier to use on the smaller screens of netbook devices. Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 is the first release to be “fully integrated into the Ubuntu family, fully up to date with the latest applications and hardware support”. In addition to the customised interface UNR also sports a speedy boot time.
