Starting January 2nd 2014 we will be adding support for the LTS releases of Kubuntu to our support subscriptions. Now why are we doing this?
We use Kubuntu as a base for our Black Lab Linux KDE edition and since Kubuntu is not supported for enterprise deployment through Canonical we are going to support it since we do support KDE and QT through the Enterprise release of Black Lab Linux.
Now, if your support subscription already calls for KDE support you will not be charged any extra for this addon and just let us know that you are deploying Kubuntu and it will be added to your support subscription contract. The 2014 refresh of our support subscriptions are being worked on and will be announced through the month of December.
Some of the other changes that will be in the revised support subscriptions:
1. KDE 4.11, and QT 5.
2. Application porting from SGI IRIX to Black Lab Enterprise Linux
3. Kubuntu 12.04.x
4. Black Lab Linux 4.2 KDE
On your support subscriptions for hardware we will be adding the following:
1. Support for SGI MIPS architecture for a period of ONE calendar year
2. Support for POWERPC architecture
3. Support for the installation of Kubuntu 12.04.x on all hardware
4. Support for the installation of Black Lab Linux KDE on all hardware
No specialized support subscription contracts will be drawn up to include these changes but they will be recognized as standard.

The answers ranged from a powerful workstation, and something they can integrate into their data center and an operating system that can be intuitive, easy to use and gets out of the way. With this in mind we set out to build a product that is both functional and powerful. One that integrates well into the data center and one that is as easy to use as the Silicon Graphics IRIX operating system. With that we came up with the Black Lab ExtremeStation.
The Black Lab ExtremeStation has the following configuration:
PROCESSOR: Intel Core i3-2120 3.30GHz,
RAM: 16GB DDR3
STORAGE: 1TB HDD
NETWORKING: Gigabit LAN
USB PORTS: 6 USB Ports
OPTICAL DRIVE: DVDRW, BLU-RAY PLAYER
VIDEO CARD: Radeon HD 5450 Video Card - 2GB, DDR3
SOUND CARD: Full-Duplex Playback And Recording Supports Dolby® Digital EX And DTS ES 6.1/7.1 CH DVD Soundtrack Playback
STORAGE EXPANDABILITY: Internal Card Reader with USB and eSATA - 3 Port USB 2.0, 1 Port USB 3.0, 1 Port eSATA, 6 Slot Card Reader
INPUT: keyboard and mouse.
OPERATING SYSTEM: Black Lab Enterprise Linux
With this we also offer the Black Lab Enterprise Linux OS. Its a robust operating system with the capabilities of other enterprise class operating systems.

This machine comes to us after a long wait and a search high and low for a technology partner who could help us bring the very best technology to our users. With the success of the original BriQ the new system comes with the following:
Processor: Intel Celeron 847 Dual Core 64 bit 1.10 ghz
RAM: 2gb expandable to 4 gb
Hard Drive: 320gb expandable to 1 TB
Networking: Built in Gigabit Ethernet, Built in 802.11 B/G/N wireless connectivity
Display Adaptor: HDMI, VGA
Connectivity: USB 3.0 front USB 2.0 Rear
Graphics Chip: Intel HD Graphics
This machine will be available Monday, Oct 28, 2013.
Roberto J Dohnert, our lead consultant and system designer contributed these remarks when asked,
"With the BriQ A500, we have an ultra small, ultra light form factor system. With Dimensions that make this smaller than the Mac Mini and a host of modern PC features not found in other "mini" form factors. This system is a must have for productivity, entertainment and general consumer use."
Mr. Dohnert continues,
"With the original BriQ being our most successful PC model that we sell, its always a sell out, we expect the BriQ A500 to continue that tradition. When we announced this to our partners and select customers the response was always the same. How much? Well, we are delivering the BriQ A500, with more advanced features; smaller, faster, lighter and more powerful for the same price that we offered the original BriQ. $500.00 USD. Getting closer to the holiday season we also plan to offer addons and different hardware configurations. Also, given the generosity of ASUS, who is sending us three of these systems we decided to expand our giveaway. With 5 days left for our October, OS/4 Giveaway we are adding one of the BriQ A500's to that giveaway. So everyone that has bought OS/4 or donated to the OS/4 OpenLinux Project with their name in the drawing has a chance to win a brand new BriQ A500. Anyone who donates or purchases OS/4 within the next 5 days, also has the same chance to win a brand new PC. I think we are probably the only Linux distributor who has EVER done that. You get a 2 TB external hard drive, an OS/4 cap and a BriQ A500 close to a thousand dollar value. The second BriQ A500 will be our giveaway for November. So if you dont win it in October you can win it in November."
It will be a very merry Christmas for someone.
Once again, the BriQ A500 will start shipping Monday, October 28 2013.
