As HP dumps Linux for netbooks, Linutop powers on
In the words of Frederic Baille, the CEO of Linutop, “an open source, Linux-based operating system is the ideal platform that allows users to get most of their devices. Additionally, open source allows running systems more cost-effective because users do not have to pay for an operating systems and applications from the established vendors. We are convinced that open source operating systems will become even more popular amongst many professional and semi-professional users in the future."
But then he would say that, wouldn't he - Linutop being a vendor of Linux micro-PCs, after all. Not that we mind - we rated it 9/10 in Linux Format issue 110, calling it "a flexible, powerful, silent and low-power device that could be used in many different situations."
Is it really such a bad thing if HP pulls support for Linux netbooks in the UK? Have your say below.
