"VIA offers highly integrated low power x86 processor
platforms that are being adopted in a wide range of netbooks,
notebooks, desktops, servers, and embedded devices from leading
brand names such as Dell, HP and Lenovo.
"VIA is among a growing number of processor platform vendors
that recognize the importance of working with the Linux community.
By collaborating at the technical and business levels, VIA can
ensure its hardware and the technology of its partners are
supported in the Linux kernel releases. The company opened its
specifications and code and began to adhere to a quarterly release
schedule more than a year ago. This move allows open source
developers to easily support VIA’s components."
