"I was primarily looking for a new laptop because I wanted to
update to state-of-art operating systems. I wanted a Linux friendly
laptop, as that is my primary operating system. Lenovo Thinkpad
T60p has been mentioned at several places (including Linux Journal)
as a very Linux friendly laptop. I wanted Linux pre-installed and
configured for me, so I went with LinuxCertified's LCTP60 offering
- configured dual-booth with Ubuntu 7.04 and Windows Vista
Business. My older laptop runs Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger), which I
didn't want to upgrade for now.
"So, why write a review for this laptop? Well, I thought there
would be other folks who would be interested in a state-of-art
laptop with state-of-art operating systems. I recently read an
article comparing Vista with Ubuntu. Since, my laptop runs both, I
may be able to provide an interesting perspective. Novell is
running these 'Hi I am Linux' spoof ads. So, what about my laptop?
'Hi I am Linux.. err, I am PC.., ahem, I am Bi-OS...'"
