Follow-Up - iMagic OS: Commercial Linux Distro Gone Wrong

Filed under
Linux

If you're a regular reader of our news, you're probably well-aware that I like to rant about different things from time to time. It could be anything... DRM, failed game sequels, digital music, DTV transition, you name it. Once in a while though, I'll receive a bit of flack for whatever I ranted about, and one perfect example of this was with regards to last week's posting, "iMagic OS: Commercial Linux Distro Gone Wrong". After posting, I received a rather straight-forward e-mail from Carlos La Borde, the CEO of iMagic OS. I'll tackle some points here.

In the e-mail, Carlos stressed to me that iMagic OS isn't "lackluster", nor is their support non-existent. He noted that his team goes the extra mile where support is concerned, and that thousands of man-hours have been poured into the distro. I don't doubt this, but as I mentioned to Carlos, my assumptions were all based on what I saw on their website. The fact is, the information was lacking, and given that there were no screenshots available for showing off some of the distro's major features, I figured I had all of the information I needed to prepare a posting.

The Libreboot C201 from Minifree is really really really ridiculously open source

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
