Cosmo Communicator running Ubuntu Touch shows what should have been

We basically have a two-horse race in the mobile market but there was never a shortage of attempts to have a third contender. There's Microsoft's Windows Phone and Windows Mobile attempts, of course, as well as Nokia's spiritual successor Jolla. And then there's Ubuntu Touch, so far still the most successful attempt to bring a mainstream Linux OS to commercial phones. Canonical basically giving up on that effort ironically caused Ubuntu Touch to become available on even more devices and the Cosmo Communicator is probably one of the best examples of what an Ubuntu phone should have been.

Apple M1 Macs can now run Ubuntu Linux thanks to Corellium

MINISFORUM X35G Review: The Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Linux Experience

MINISFORUM X35G Review: The Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Linux Experience

Although not as common as towering desktops, the mini PC form factor has enjoyed increased popularity in recent years as consumers looked towards more general-purpose home computers. These relatively tiny PCs, however, are not exactly known for their performance and power, leaning more towards space-savings and power-efficiency, enough for basic computing tasks.

MINISFORUM, however, has long been trying to move away from such stereotypes with the likes of the H31G and its discrete NVIDIA GPU. With the MINISFORUM X35G, the company takes things in a slightly different direction, cramming in Intel's latest CPU generation and data storage tech to turn the small box into a capable workstation.
