In Pictures: The 'Bad Boys' of open source

The open source world's most notorious characters.

Eric Raymond Author of "The Cathedral and the Bazaar," one of the most influential pieces of writing in the open source world, Eric Raymond is often regarded as a sort of honorary figurehead for open source. He also worked on NetHack, one of the highest-regarded video games of all time. But that's not quite enough to earn him a "Bad Boy" badge. Did I mention he's also the editor of the Jargon File (aka "The Hackers Dictionary") and is an ardent gun rights advocate? There we go. All of that together = Bad Boy.

"When I hear the words 'social responsibility,' I want to reach for my gun."

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


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

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
