For the last couple of years I have been using Windows and Ubuntu as development systems for Atom work. More recently I’ve also enjoyed using Fedora. Over time I’ve realized that all three of these operating systems are very capable and that the primary reason I have a Windows system is due to the functionality of specific programs along with the proprietary data I have that is stored in certain files. If it weren’t for these very specific programs and needs, I could freely move between any of these OS’s now since they are all very capable systems.
Had an interesting conversation today in a meeting with some of Intel's web marketing folks - the people who run blogs.intel.com/mobility, to be precise. We were talking about who actually had hands on experience with a "MID", and that quickly moved on to the question of defining what, exactly, a MID is. And perhaps more importantly, what it is not.
