*Linux Laptop Wiki [Rebooted]*

The aim of the website is to provide a central wiki to post experiences with Linux on the model of laptop / notebook you're using.

Linlap.info is an attempt to 'reboot' the abandoned and spammed linlap dot com which is now unusable.

Please consider participating on building a new "HQ" sending in your model / experiences!

Any help appreciated!

Ubuntu Linux 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) running UBports lead Unity 8 desktop!

The work in progress (alpha) swiftly keeps going forward. It's not ready for daily use yet but it's great to try out and please if you do, submit issues to the UBports developers.

Ubuntu fans who decline the now defaulted GNOME desktop, the day of the final release will be glorious & who knows what does Canonical do thereafter?

To make it clear. If tomorrow Google decides to be transparent about their processes, I will encourage people to use their services. But until then, I do opposite.
