In Pictures: 10 Linux distros to watch in 2014

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

Ubuntu Touch Up until now, Ubuntu Touch (the mobile-focused version of Ubuntu) has been available purely for developers and pro users looking to test out the new platform. That's all set to change in 2014 with actual, shipping hardware. You, I and everyone else will be able to order their own Ubuntu-powered cellphone in the year. Will it be a smash hit, quickly rivaling many of the other dominant mobile OS players? Will it fall flat on its face and fail to ship enough units to even register as a blip on the radar? Or, perhaps more reasonably, will the results fall somewhere in the middle? Regardless of the outcome, Ubuntu Touch is going to be an interesting one to watch.

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
