Toshiba AC100 Ubuntu hack gets video demo; Official build could be in works

Friday's news that open-source tinkerers had managed to get Ubuntu 10.10 up and running on Toshiba's hitherto-Android AC100 smartbook raised a few eyebrows, but the usability of the hack was significantly scuppered by the fact it wouldn't load past the boot screen.  That's been ironed out over the weekend, and Carrypad now has video of the AC100 doing its Ubuntu thing.

Tegra 2 Isn’t Enough

Tegra 2 Isn’t Enough

It's easy to get swept up in the hardware race. Several years ago it was PCs and then notebooks; now it's smartphones and tablets chomping at the bit to clash spec sheets.
