One of the world’s top laptop makers, Lenovo just announced at the LinuxWorld conference that it will start to offer laptops with Linux pre-installed. It looks like they’ve gone into a deal with Novel, though I’m not too excited about that after the recent Microsoft-Novel agreement regarding Linux.
I’m strongly considering buying a laptop of my own and it is very likely to be a Lenovo. However, it’s quite likely that I won’t get this option here and I’m already very comfortable with installing my own OS. This is still a big thing and should come as a welcome news to a lot of people who are sick of all the hassles and licensing issues of Windows.
