Lenovo will soon offer Linux on Laptops

Lenovo Linux LaptopLenovo, the third biggest manufacturer of computers in the world, has recently decided that it would soon start offering Novell’s SUSE Linux pre-installed on a large selection of their entry-level to high-end laptops.

This announcement comes three months after Dell started selling Ubuntu Linux laptops and desktops in the U.S. 

The only major manufacturer that hasn’t jumped on the linux bandwagon yet is Hewlett-Packard.  It’s not implausible to believe that it won’t be very long before they start doing so because with two major competitors offering pre-installed Linux systems, Linux systems could soon represent a more significant part of the consumer PC market.

  1. Nope Thinkpads along with Linux work just fine, only part is that you need to do some small hacks to get the new hardware functioning good.

    So either they have drivers written for them or they have older hardware to which linux drivers already are available.
