"Still, that's nothing compared to finding HP's desktop Linux support. For example, several new HP laptops and netbooks come with Splashtop instant-on Linux, but you have to dig around the fine-print to find that out. HP has also offered SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop) on some low-end business PCs like the HP Compaq dc5850 from time to time, but that appears to no longer be the case. Now, HP is-kind of, sort of-offering support for several of the more important community Linux distributions.
