"You know what really ticks me off the most about
Lenovo's attitude towards desktop Linux? I know there's a demand
for ThinkPads with Linux. Go to any Linux tradeshow. You'll see
more ThinkPads than any other kind of Linux-powered PC. Lenovo
could have been the poster-child for desktop Linux. But, instead,
the real reason why Lenovo is making its ridiculous claims against
desktop Linux is that the company wants to be Microsoft's stooge.
"Good luck standing out from the crowd with that approach. It's
only what 99% of all PC vendors do. Desktop Linux will continue to
grow with, or without, Lenovo. "
