Lenovo to sell Linux-based laptops

Laptops / Notebooks

linux_penguin.gifSeveral months after Dell announced Linux-based PCs, Lenovo has made a similar announcement.

Today it said that it would begin selling laptop computers with Linux software from Novell instead of Microsoft Windows, with availability to both business and personal customers.

Lenovo’s Linux laptops (try saying that after a couple of beers) will go on sale some time in the fourth quarter of this year.

The announcement comes at the start of the annual LinuxWorld conference in San Francisco.

According to Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu who make another flavour of Linux, Dell are likely to expand their Linux PC programme, and he is also in negotiations with other large PC makers to introduce models preloaded with Ubuntu Linux.
