A Linux-based operating system, is probably the best thing that you can put on your machine. I can list out reasons why Linux is better than Windows. That, however, does not mean Linux does not come without any woes. Hardware support remains the main hurdle for desktop Linux growth, especially the graphics card and printer support.
Awesome people like the ones who created the Nouveau drivers have tackled this problem in a way that deserves huge respect. Their approach involved studying the drivers available for platforms like windows and then reverse engineering and creating working drivers for Linux. They have made sure Linux delivers a quality performance on a wide range of hardware.
But then, there are people who approach this issue in a completely opposite way. Why not make our own hardware?
Major operating systems like Linux Mint have partnered with manufacturers to have their own preloaded computers. This way users never have to encounter any sort of driver issue while also ensuring that the operating system is utilizing maximum capabilities of the underlying machine. I mean, the complexity of designing generic software for diverse hardware becomes null as you are designing software for target machines. Cooking the software for targeted hardware simplifies a lot of things for both the developers as well as users.
While a lot of Linux operating systems target a particular set of people, like Windows users, Mac users, Coders, Gamers (I love you Steam ), there came Endless OS which directly targeted just about anybody with a PC. Home users, office computers, students, businesses, just everything where a PC is used.
Well, Endless is stupidly simpler. It comes with a huge number of pre-installed applications from a wide genre, reducing the installation hassle for a home user. Contrary to popular cliche that Linux is for advanced users, Endless OS is downright usable even by a child. The effort they have put in to make Endless OS usable is unquestionable. Endless OS is definitely worth a try.
The mission of Endless team is to enable more and more people access to computers. There focus is on emerging market such as Africa, South America etc.
Endless have been making compact computers from a time. Their Endless Mini and Endless One computers have made noise enough for them to bring out premium PCs this time. All without putting a hole in your purse. Endless have released two new computers in the US. These computers come with the following specs and price tags.
You can check out and buy these Endless machines here.
Although I did feel that the Endless Mission One will be a pricey deal considering the price tag excludes the costs of a monitor, keyboard and other peripherals, I’m pretty sure it’ll be a great computing experience. And, the wooden casing is gorgeous too. Endless computers running their homegrown distro have been a pleasure to use so far. And things are only going to get better with the new Endless Mission PCs.
So what’s your take on these premium compact boxes? Pricey or worth it? Do share your thoughts and do not forget to share.
