Given the broad choice, and combine that with rock-bottom prices, there's never been a better time to pick up a new Android tablet. Here are the best Android tablets for August 2014.
Qubes, an open source operating system designed to provide strong security for desktop computing, which is based on Xen, X Window System, and Linux and can run most Linux applications and utilize most of the Linux drivers, is now at version 2 RC2 and it's ready for testing.
Sorry if this is the wrong place but I'm not even asking for help anymore...
So I got a cheap 400€ netbook which is nice, it has a fanless passively cooled Pentium N3530 CPU with Intel HD Graphics Bay Trail and after installing Ubuntu (I also tried other distros) I noticed some problems. Horrible 3D performance. Lots of screen tearing. Spent two weeks trying to fix the tearing issue and every solution I saw didn't work for me. So since it also has bad 3D performance and it's fairly new and only available on budget-priced passively cooled x86 tablets and netbooks this leads me to the conclusion that there is no driver support.
Is this true? Is there any place I can tell about this to the developers of the Intel drivers so someday there might be support? Because on Windows I don't have any problems and don't really want to switch to it.submitted by Killeri404

Microsoft's wrestling match with Samsung may just be a contract fight, or it could be the beginning of a war over the validity of Microsoft's Android patents.
China seems to be on a mission to isolate itself from the world, at least in terms of technology. After banning Windows 8 on government PCs and raiding several of Microsoft's offices in China as part of an anti-trust investigation, Chinese officials have now prohibited to purchase of several Apple products for government use.
Reportedly, the list of banned Apple products include the iPad, iPad Mini, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and half a dozen other items, all of which were left off of a final government procurement list distributed in July. Interestingly, they appeared on the same list in draft form just a month ago. It's no surprise really, when you consider the Chinese state media already declared the iPhone a "threat to national security."
