Linux on Mobile Computers
Linux has a strong tradition of user-based support such as the Linux Laptop Volunteer Support Database available at www.cs.utexas.edu/users/kharker/linux-laptop/volunteer.html. Volunteers provide their e-mail addresses and machine makes and models. Those looking for help can search for their hardware and find volunteers willing to answer installation or configuration questions. This can also be an excellent way to find a working XF86Config file. At the time of this writing there were over 200 volunteers from 36 countries.
The Linux Laptop Home Page that I maintain can serve as a good springboard to the world of documentation and support available for laptops running Linux and is available at http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/kharker/linux-laptop/ and www.redhat.com/llhp/. Everything mentioned in this article and more can be found from the Linux Laptop Home Page, which is updated regularly.
The world of mobile Linux is very exciting. The ability to take your workstation with you appeals to many people. Concerns that choosing Linux as an operating system might limit access to or benefits from the various features that make notebooks really useful are largely unfounded. Active development and documentation efforts are supporting all aspects of mobile computing under Linux. If you've been considering running Linux on a notebook or laptop computer, there's never been more interest or support than there is now.
