This 7.7 pound machine is a portable Linux powerhouse.
  6. Oct 28th 2002 Geeks Cruising
    Lincoln and the WebElf are fresh back from last week's Linux Lunacy II cruise around the Caribbean. We had a marvelous time meeting all our fellow geeks; learning a little too much about the working of the kernel, filesystems, and Perl; and exploring fascinating new worlds. Many thanks go out to the folks at Linux Journal for convincing us to go. (Doc Searls wrote a wonderful pair of articles about the trip.) Be sure to check out the planning stages of Linux Lunacy III; by popular vote, it will be a cruise to Alaska.

  9. Sep 16th 2002 EmperorLinux Toucan Upgraded
    The Toucan (IBM ThinkPad T Series) gets an upgrade! The Toucan T30 now comes with a 1600-2000 MHz Pentium 4-M processor, a 14.1" screen running X@1400x1050, 256 MB RAM (expandable to 1028 MB), a 40-60 GB hard drive, and several optical drive options including CDRW/DVD.

  25. Apr 15th 2002 EmperorLinux BlackPerl Retired
    EmperorLinux regretfully announces the retirement of the BlackPerl R series (based on the Sony VAIO R505D/DS). The Linux compatibility of this machine has decreased in its most recent incarnations to the point that we are not comfortable offering it to customers as part of an out-of-the-box Linux laptop experience. We will continue to monitor the development of similar systems by Sony and, should they become more Linux-compatible in the future, happily resurrect this system. (Happily, this is now the case; see the news for 09-26-02 for more details.)
