Mark Shuttleworth's recent closure of Ubuntu Linux bug No. 1 ("Microsoft has a majority market share") placed a meaningful, if somewhat controversial, exclamation point on how far Linux has come since Linus Torvalds rolled out the first version of the OS in 1991 as a pet project.
In an era of small devices with small screens, the Samsung Ativ Book 6 seems almost a throwback. It's a strapping, business- and gaming-class Ultrabook sporting a 15.6-inch screen, a full-sized keyboard with numeric pad, a generously sized touchpad, and a wrist rest. Big and bright, the screen is good competition for the Samsung monitor I have on my own desktop. If I were stuck using this as a replacement for said desktop, I wouldn't feel all that cramped.
