Linux Revolution

An anonymous reader writes "Quoted Katherine Noyes
"The tablet arena already includes countless contenders featuring Linux-based Android, but a company currently seeking funding on indiegogo aims to produce a new line of what it calls “true Linux” devices.
We've already seen Linux-powered tablets including the Vivaldi and the rugged Trimble Yuma, of course, but the new PengPod line from Peacock Imports includes both 7- and 10-inch tablet models as well as a mini PC, all running the free and open source operating system. The prospect is a compelling one, and it fits right in with the Linux powered revolution that's been going on. If you're a fan of Linux in particular or low-cost devices in general, you may want to check out this new option.
