Lenovo rolls out Linux Thinkpad

Lenovo rolls out Linux Thinkpad : Tom's Hardware

IBM Thinkpads running Linux. Well IBM Thinkpads aren't really IBM anymore but Lenovo and Linux is nowhere near as wierd to use as it used to be.
Lenovo today announced at the Linux World conference that it will be offering a version of its flagship Thinkpad model T60p. The notebook comes typically with Windows XP, but is now available with Novell's Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 software as well. Lenovo hopes that especially people involved in engineering and applications will find a Penguin-powered mobile computer attractive enough to shell out some extra dollars.
I think it's good news to see Linux distros being installed on business grade machines. When it comes to operating systems I think it's important to keep an open mind.
