O.K. So i'm a bit of a fan of GNU/Linux, I have had a version of Ubuntu on my little Hitachi laptop for over 2 years now. It's a great little machine PIII running at 800mhz whoo hoo, and with Ubuntu it does everything that I need - including a little bit of video editing. I bought it second hand in Japan so it has a Japanese keyboard that is always cool to spring on someone.
So one of my hopes was that Luidia would come out with at least a driver for eBeam on linux and it looks like they have. YES!! I went to fire up my Hitachi but I left my power supply at work so it will have to be when I get back to the office on Thursday. I can't wait because I've always wanted to demo on Linux for conferences to freak people out.
I'm off to Albany to do a bit of a roadshow with Paul so I will be out of the office until Thursday.
