  • LILAC - Linux with Laptop Computers (Werner Heuser)
    • Laptops are different from desktops/towers. They use certain hardware such as PCMCIA cards, infrared ports, batteries, docking stations. Often their hardware is more limited (e.g. disk space, CPU speed), though the performance gap is becoming smaller. In many instances, laptops can become a desktop replacement. Hardware support for Linux on laptops is sometimes more limited (e.g. graphic chips, internal modems). Laptops often use specialized hardware, hence finding a driver can be more difficult. Laptops are often used in changing environments, so there is a need for multiple configurations and additional security strategies.

Some say this was the beginning of Open Source software, but the old-timers will tell you that Open Source was how software was originally done. After all, when IBM started selling the first mass-produced commercial computers in the sixties, the software and its source code came as part of the package. It wasn't until much later that proprietary programs became the norm."
