Cool linux handheld computers coming in 2018

See the original posting on Boing Boing

Giant Pockets rounds up the options for owning an ultraportable, ultra-light computer that run an easily-accessible distribution: The World of Linux Handhelds in 2018. Thanks for Android, this is more niche than it ever was, but there’s a surprisingly large number of options either already out or coming soon. Freedom is fun! So are games…

I have somewhat mixed feelings about where these devices go. First, I am really glad to see a lot more activity and official support of Linux on more and more hardware, because more choice means more competition and likely better options altogether for several types of users. However, I am quite concerned with the overall trend to make such devices more and more premium, price-wise.

The Gemini is very my cup of tea, and should ship imminently.
