"Nathan Myers, the former CEO of the now defunct Linuxlaptops.com, says he was the one who first made the suggestion to Tuxtops that they do custom Linux configs for laptops. Now, it looks as if Tuxtops might make a full-time venture out of creating those ready-made Linux installation images."

"Earlier this week, Tuxtops announced that it would no longer sell laptops loaded with Linux, but instead would be concentrating on an as-yet-to-be-named software venture...."

"Myers says he passed the tip on to Tuxtops CEO Graham Hine, and the company utilized this particular hack quite successfully. Myers thinks it is possible that Hine is planning on simply dropping the unprofitable hardware sales and concentrating on selling the software configurations en masse."
