Lenovo Love Linux, Launches ThinkPad and ThinkStation PCs With Ubuntu

Lenovo Launches Linux-ready ThinkPad and ThinkStation PCs preinstalled with Ubuntu.

Beginning today, Lenovo is offering a greatly expanded selection of OEM Linux PCs to the general public. Earlier this year, Lenovo began offering Fedora Linux pre-installed on laptop systems. Today announcement marks a significant expansion in Lenovo’s Linux portfolio, which the company has been building out in recent months.

A range of roughly 30 new Linux-ready devices will soon be available to purchase, including 13 ThinkStation and ThinkPad P Series workstations and 14 ThinkPad T, X, X1 and L Series laptops.

“Lenovo’s expansion of Ubuntu certified devices shows great commitment to open source and the Linux community. With data scientists and developers increasingly needing Linux for emerging workloads, this collaboration enables enterprises to equip their employees with the assurance of long-term stability, added security and simplified IT management,”

said Dean Henrichsmeyer, VP of Engineering at Canonical.

By providing these devices preloaded with the OEM version of Ubuntu, Lenovo is removing complexity for Linux users and introducing end-to-end web and phone support for platform-related Linux issues.
