In Pictures: 10 Linux distros to watch in 2014

What to expect in the world of Linux in the upcoming year.

Roll Your Own "The Year Of The Linux Desktop" has become a bit of a running joke at this point, but I'm going to make a similar declaration and say that 2014 will be "The Year Of Everyone Having Their Own Linux Distro." At this point, the tools for building your own Linux distribution (such as Suse Studio) are so mature and easy to use that, in many cases, the best Linux Distro for you to use is the one you whip up for yourself based on an existing distro. Call it an appliance. Call it a re-spin. Either way, the ability to make your own system (and provide it to others who may share your needs) is going to get pretty big in 2014.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
