Via-specific Linux distro eyes UMPCs

,----[ Quote ]
| A Gentoo-based Linux distribution for Via Epia mini-ITX boards may
| create an edition specifically for Via-based UMPCs (ultra-mobile
| PCs), according to an interview with EpiOS project leader Sascha
| Pallenberg.
|
| EpiOS is a hardware-specific Linux distribution for Via Epia boards.
| It is based on Gentoo and KDE, and aims to support traditionally
| problematic Via processor features...

|
| In his interview at CarryPad, Pallenberg says he expects Linux to
| work better than Windows on some UMPCs, because unlike Windows,
| Linux can be trimmed down to support specific device capabilities.
