Hash: SHA1

System76 Serval Professional Notebook

,----[ Quote ]
| Finding a laptop that can run Linux is no longer much of a challenge. As we 
| have shared in numerous netbook and notebook reviews, a majority off the 
| shelf PCs shipping with Windows can easily be replaced with Linux and chances 
| are most -- if not all -- of the components will "just work" on this 
| open-source operating system, while ill-supported parts can usually be 
| configured to work in just a few steps. For those looking to save time or 
| avoid a potential headache, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, and other major vendors 
| have been offering Linux notebooks for some time now. One of the smaller 
| vendors though that has been offering Ubuntu Linux notebooks (along with 
| desktops and servers) is System76 Inc. This Colorado-based company not only 
| ensures their hardware is 100% compatible with Ubuntu Linux, but they also 
| preload some popular software packages that are not installed by default on 
| Ubuntu. In this review we are looking at the System76 Serval Professional 
| notebook.             
| [...]
| If you don't mind paying more for a notebook that ships with Ubuntu and is 
| guaranteed to run nicely with Linux -- along with supporting a vendor that is 
| centered around the Linux ecosystem -- the System76 Serval Professional is a 
| notebook worth considering for your next purchase.   


"We should dedicate a cross-group team to come up with ways to leverage Windows
technically more."

| its long-term Linux commitment today by launching the Gazelle Ultra
| (pictured) — an Ubuntu laptop with some pretty slick hardware specs and a
| biometric fingerprint reader for security.

Talking Ubuntu Linux: Q&A with System76 President Carl Richell

| All About Ubuntu: What types of customers do you expect to purchase your
| latest Ubuntu servers?

| computer systems that run Ubuntu, is bound to give its owner bragging rights
| at any LAN party, especially with how loud the system can get. It has the
| hallmarks of on-the-go computing, while performing comparably to a desktop
| gaming system.
