Well it was a fairly quiet week here in the Linux blogosphere, as much of the mainstream tech world staggered directly out of their New Year's revelries and into the halls of CES.
Not that Linux didn't have a presence at the gargantuan show, mind you. It was there, all right -- not just in phones but in TVs, smartwatches and cars, to name just a few examples. Still, there was no denying that the mega-event left things a little more peaceful than usual for those of us who chose to stay put in the Linux blogosphere.

Isn't Windows 10 supposed to be the one OS to rule them all? Touchscreens, mouse and keyboard, interpretive dance, mind control? I think you should wait for Windows 10, pay your $200 dollars for the version that actually has some functionality, and thank the great Gods of silicone that someone out there is finally doing it right...

Don't care anything about Windooz except wish it never existed. Bill screwed CPM-86 when he plagiarized it for IBM. He should have gone to jail.
I only use older laptop systems. New is too bloated prices. Just my attitude.
I use several Panasonic convertibles and Linux touch screen is just fine.
This one is the toughbook CF-C2 with 8 GB Ram and four core Intel I-5. It rocks.

Ubuntu would not be the only horse in the free (as in freedom) mobile OS. Replicant is already out and maturing, and fully functional if supplemented with f-droid app store and (unfortunately) the proprietary firmware required to get wifi and data antennae working: http://www.replicant.us/
