In Pictures: 10 Linux distros to watch in 2014

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

SteamOS Let's take stock. Valve, one of the most important video game developers and publishers in the business, is now making Linux games. Its Steam store is running on Linux. It’s a member of the Linux Foundation. And it’s even built its own Linux Distro – SteamOS – that will power multiple game consoles shipping in 2014. If successful in the market, and there's little reason to think they won't be at least moderately successful at this point, this could have a huge impact on the Linux gaming scene. The largest we've ever seen. You know Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo (and just about everyone else) will be watching very closely what Valve does with SteamOS 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.
