In Pictures: 10 Linux distros to watch in 2014

What to expect in the world of Linux in the upcoming year.

openSUSE The world of Linux Distros can be a chaotic and crazy place, especially lately. Changed user interface over here, controversy over there. The net result is a lot of Linux users leaving their current distro and looking for greener pastures. One of the big exceptions to this is openSUSE – which continues to be one of the most steady, consistent forces in the Linux world. In a Linux world that seems to be in constant flux, that dependability is...refreshing. Do I expect any of this to change in 2014? Not a chance. But I do anticipate that openSUSE will see a boost in users as people seek a safe harbor in the various “display server” and “desktop environment” wars.

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.
