"As part of the Canonical ASUS deal, ASUS will preload Ubuntu
Linux on its Eee PC series of notebooks. The ASUS 1001PXD, 1011PX
and 1015PX models will be available with Ubuntu 10.10, with the
plan to have more models available over the course of 2011.
Canonical's deal with ASUS is part of a larger effort from the
Linux vendor to work more closely with hardware vendors.
"To put this in perspective we are now working directly with
Asus, Lenovo, Dell and Acer on enabling systems," Chris Kenyon,
vice president OEM Services at Canonical said."
