Back in June, Lenovo announced that it was certifying its Think workstations for Ubuntu Linux, and it's expanding on that announcement today. For one thing, all of its ThinkPads and ThinkStations are going to be certified now, including ThinkPads from the T, X, X1, and L series.
Moreover, you'll be able to purchase one of these devices with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed. Lenovo says that there are over 30 PCs that come with the new Ubuntu option.
"Lenovo's vision of enabling smarter technology for all really does mean 'for all'. Our announcement of device certification in June was a step in the right direction to enable customers to more easily install Linux on their own. Our goal is to remove the complexity and provide the Linux community with the premium experience that our customers know us for. This is why we have taken this next step to offer Linux-ready devices right out of the box," said Igor Bergman, Vice President of PCSD Software & Cloud at Lenovo.
Lenovo says that these PCs will be available starting this month, and they'll be rolling out in phases through next year.
