[News] Lenovo Sells IdeaPad Only with Ballnux Preinstalled (No GNU/Linux Yet)

Lenovo IdeaPad S10e review

,----[ Quote ]
| Lenovo isn't a household name when it comes to computers, but in business 
| circles the company is well respected for its robust line of ThinkPad laptops 
| (previously produced for IBM). Consequently, you won't find Ubuntu or 
| Mandriva on its IdeaPad netbooks – the only option is SUSE Linux Enterprise 
| Desktop.    



Virtualization: Pushing Linux Into Small Businesses?

,----[ Quote ]
| When Lenovo launched four ThinkServers a few days ago, The VAR Guy noticed
| that the systems — designed for small and midsize businesses — emphasized
| virtualization. Hmmm. So, The VAR Guy began to wonder: Are virtualized
| servers (running a mix of Linux and Windows) really starting to push into the
| SMB space?


Microsoft-paid anti Linux stooges at Lenovo

,----[ Quote ]
| This isn’t like Windows at all which already has or provides easy access to
| everything I want it to do, can be downloaded and burned legally and for free
| to any blank disc I have laying around, and is entirely open source. Linux is
| proprietary and costs between $140-$1000 a license.


This is Why Lenovo Sucks at Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| When someone makes such giant mountains out of such tiny molehills it makes
| me wonder. How is it that ordinary Linux users can download and install Linux
| on Thinkpads, Ideapads, EeePCs, Mini Notes, and all kinds of computer brands
| and models without it being a big hairy failure? What special knowledge do
| they possess that Lenovo is unable to grasp? How can anyone in tech these
| days get away with not having broad knowledge of multiple operating systems,
| applications, and trends in development? You don't have to be a total elite
| expert in every detail, but I think anyone who isn't informed enough to avoid
| spouting pure nonsense should not have a job in tech.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
