To go on sale in the US this month: Lenovo ThinkPad P laptops with Ubuntu.

Dell may be the best-known Linux laptop vendor right now, but Lenovo is looking to muscle in on the pre-installed Linux machine market.

Shipping Linux on high-end, premium machines like these is indicative of one thing: demand.

Lenovo is clearly hearing from its customers, from businesses, and from developers that they want LINUX out of the box.

OSS is great! Why? This morning a girl contacted me because she had issues using mepcheck (github.com/alanmarazzi/mepchec) a Python package I wrote a couple years back. Because of it she now can conduct some previously very difficult research work, in the meantime she's learning Python and how to code and I think this is simply one of the coolest things ever!

Enjoying a few beers this everning before realising I'm actually getting quite pissed
