ZaReason's New Linux Netbook, How to Thrive in a Tough Market

,----[ Quote ]
| Cathy and Earl Malmrose founded ZaReason several years ago. ZaReason is a
| Linux OEM that has long intrigued me for a number of reasons: they encourage
| customers to open their boxes and tinker, they specialize in OEM Linux boxes,
| and they demonstrate that there is still room for independent shops in the
| rough-and-tumble world of computer retailing. In many ways the independents
| out-perform the big businesses as they understand Linux and Linux users, and
| a Linux-only shop doesn't have to contend with the pressures and restrictions
| that Microsoft puts on its partners.

ZaReason Ion Breeze 3770

,----[ Quote ]
| While this is the first NVIDIA ION nettop that we have tested under Linux
| (along with being the first ZaReason system we have reviewed), we were left
| being quite pleased with the Ion Breeze 3770. When using the proprietary
| Linux driver from NVIDIA, the GeForce 9400M GPU works great with an Intel
| Atom processor and delivers excellent video playback capabilities and is able
| to even run some games. Aside from faster graphics, when factoring out the
| other hardware differences with today's tests, the NVIDIA MCP79 performs
| about the same as the Intel 945 with ICH7 Southbridge.


ZaReason Readies Ubuntu 9.04 PCs, Servers

,----[ Quote ]
| On the server front, ZaReason launched its first rack-mount Ubuntu servers in
| March, and Malmrose says ZaReason will be growing that product line
| throughout 2009. Also, customers are using ZaReason UntangleBox as a
| server, notes Malmrose.


ZaReason: An Amazing Attack of Linux Cluefulness

,----[ Quote ]
| Genuine cluefulness in any business is a rare pleasure, and that is why I
| like ZaReason so much. ZaReason sells Linux boxes: desktop, server, netbook,
| and pretty much whatever you want, just ask. I first "met" Cathy Malmrose,
| the CEO of ZaReason, on the Linuxchix mailing lists, but her business didn't
| really grab my attention until I heard about their Ubuntu keyboard.


Review: ZaReason Makes Desktop Linux A Breeze

| The Bottom Line: If you need a basic, low-end PC without the hassles and
| security concerns tied to Windows, ZaReason Breeze is a breathe of fresh
| air.
