| and innovation in the laptop and netbook arenas, and it's also 
| showing unwavering support for Linux, despite its long-standing 
| relationship with Microsoft. The company is the very first vendor 
| to ship a Moblin version 2 netbook, and offers nicely designed 
| Ubuntu-based portable systems as well. In addition to its new 
| "Latitude On"  instant-on Linux, the company's new Latitude Z 
| notebook features wireless recharging.

| of GNU/Linux by government and business have contributed to this 
| movement. No one is ignoring it, making fun of it or fighting 
| GNU/Linux effectively.
