HP loves Linux the Windows way

| Well, unless you’re used to the fact that your hardware vendor offers you RPM

| offers only Windows executables as a way to support its Linux products...

Apologism:

Why Microsoft should not lose (and free software will still win)

| Let’s face it Microsoft are an easy target when it comes to protesting
| against proprietary licencing. They are—after all—the largest and most
| obvious proponent of that particular form of consumer control.

KDE 4.0 on HP 2133 Mini-Note

,----[ Quote ]
| Last week HP announced it's Mini-Note PC with preloads of SUSE Linux
| Enterprise Desktop 10. Our heros of the Mobile Devices Team have worked the
| last weeks on that. The Mini-Note is available in different configurations
| starting at $499 (that would be only 313 Euro if applied for Europe without
| surcharge). All editions share the form factor, the nearly full-size keyboard
| and the nice display (1280x768). So I had to lend one from Mobile Devices
| team and play with it. * * *

HP Media Vault 2100 Linux Server Reviewed: One Kick-Ass Little Penguin

,----[ Quote ]
| In the end, this product isn't just another NAS, but a bold statement that HP
| is making, that it doesn't have to be saddled by the rough riders of Redmond
| when it can build (license?) its own practically identical box at a lower
| cost. Now I know that there are some things that you can only do with a
| PC-like server running a full OS, but honestly, what are they? I mean, do
| most people, even die-hard server-needers, give a crap? I want to know from
| you folks: Why bother with Windows Home Server when the Linux-based
| alternatives are on the surface equally friendly, equally powerful and—oh
| yeah—half the cost? * * * *
