Linux Laptop For Everyone – A Cheap Tablet Without An OS?

I have tried Linux on a cheap 8 inch tablet. Since it worked for some important software like Libreoffice. I thought. Hey. Linux distros have a great potential on tablets. Sure the screen is smaller than my monitor but it works and thats is probably enough.

So inspired by the Raspberry Pi which have a very smart price tag. Then why not instead waiting for a Linux Laptop. Consider releasing a tablet without an OS. A tablet in the price range of sub 1000 SEK.

Then with a full size keyboard and mouse people who can’t afford either a laptop or a PC can have ICT training or engage in computer enhanced education. Libreoffice Writer, Calc, Web programming, Octave (Matlab), Python and more.

Another advantage of running a Linux Distro on a tablet is the low power. People without electricity from the grid can charge the tablet using solar charged battery bank.

I think this represents a possible path for Linux on the desktop.
