In Pictures: 10 amazing Linux desktop environments you've probably never seen

One of the most amazing things about Linux is how versatile it is.

ROX ROX is...weird, but wonderful. It brings together the “everything is a file” style of traditional UNIX systems with some concepts from RISC OS. Most current computers try to hide the guts of your file system from you and provide you with a series of launchers (docks, “start buttons”, etc.) and shortcut tools. ROX takes the opposite approach, opting instead to make the file system itself as usable as possible so you can work with your system efficiently directly from the file manager. To this end, ROX uses the “Applications are directories” approach, filing applications (and support files) in a single directory that is then treated as the app itself.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
