Lenovo to offer Linux notebooks

Lenovo is to start offering Linux-powered notebooks as an alternative to Windows. This means that now two of the top three PC makers will have a Linux line.

The plans were announced by Lenovo at the start of the LinuxWorld annual conference held in San Francisco.  As you can imagine, the plans are sketchy at present (no pricing info or what models will be available) but what we do know is that the Linux distro will be supplied by Novell.  We also know that the Linux-powered notebooks will be available sometime later this year. 

It'll be interesting to see if Lenovo publicizes its Linux notebooks more than Dell has done for far or whether customers will have to know where to look if they want one.

I'm willing to wager that HP will have a Linux range ready real soon.
