Linux Lenovo to Preload ThinkPads with Linux

Lenovo and Novell on Monday announced an agreement to preload Linux onto certain Lenovo ThinkPad notebook PCs, with Lenovo providing the support for the OS.

Lenovo and Novell on Monday announced an agreement to preload Linux onto certain Lenovo ThinkPad notebook PCs, with Lenovo providing the support for the OS.

The agreement comes a year after a similar agreement was predicted. Specifically, the agreement calls for SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 from Novell to be preloaded onto T series notebooks beginning in the fourth quarter of 2007.

This is the first time Lenovo has provided support for both the hardware and the operating system, an extension of Lenovo's current support, providing a Help Center for the SUSE operating system.

"We have seen more customers utilizing and requesting open source notebook solutions in education, government and the enterprise since our ThinkPad T60p Linux announcement, and today's announcement expands upon our efforts by offering customers more Linux options," said Sam Dusi, vice president of product marketing for the Notebook Business Unit at Lenovo. "Known for hardware and software based innovations like our roll cage and ThinkVantage Technologies, we continue our tradition of building the industry's best engineered PCs and delivering excellent customer solutions, such as SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 from Novell."

The ThinkPad notebooks with the Linux-preload will also be available for purchase by individual customers, Lenovo said. Pricing for the SUSE option was not announced.
