“Lenovo will be shipping Ubuntu preloaded devices starting with Thinkpad L450 laptop from early this month. The laptops will be available to purchase from selected commercial resellers and distributors throughout the region at prices starting from INR 40,000. This marks another milestone in the global adoption of Ubuntu, and is the first joint launch between Lenovo and Canonical in India â€“ another OEM coming into the fold in a region where Ubuntu already possesses a strong foothold.”
See Ubuntu to ship on Lenovo laptops in IndiaLenovo has long supported GNU/Linux but rarely shipped GNU/Linux on PCs. That’s changing. India uses GNU/Linux widely at work and at play. To serve this market, GNU/Linux has to appear on retail shelves. Thank you, Lenovo, for restoring competition to the market for desktop OS. Clearly, India uses GNU/Linux more at work than at play so Lenovo is going where its customers go.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
