pdaXrom(http://pdaxrom.org/) is a cross-platform Linux distribution with own build system. Its targets are PDA and embedded systems. pdaXrom uses X11 for GUI applications, hence greater versatility, improved portability and better performance. This distribution integrates its native and cross development kit so that it becomes virtually possible to recompile any graphical program to extend your system possibilities to your own needs. pdaXrom works on set of Sharp Zaurus models, phyCORE-XScale/PXA270CE Single Board Computer and x86 desktops, but is currently being ported to other architectures.
Richard Stallman talks about GNU's 25th anniversary, Google Chrome, sharing non-free software, preinstalled GNU/Linux on PC, NDA, OLPC XO(http://guiodic.wordpress.com/2008/09/17/richard-stallman-interview/): " ... I found out about a Chinese company, Lemote, which makes machines that have no non-free software (as far as we can tell) and which Windows does not support. So now I am using a Lemote machine. It is a prototype and has some inconveniences, but I am not ashamed to promote it."
The purpose of this group(http://groups.google.com/group/loongson-dev?hl=en) is to provide a common communication platform for Loongson community.
If you are looking for drivers, software and service manuals for laptops and notebooks you may sometimes find similar models branded under a different name. Especially the FCC-ID can be helpful to detect the original manufacturer.
