Some times ago I heard a marvelous news about HP about to market
machines with Ubuntu pre-installed, for HOME users (not businesses), in
Europe. How overjoyed I was.
But it's been some time now, and I still can't see any Ubuntu machine in
their on-line catalogue for France. I browsed all their desktop and
laptop pages and found only "Designed for Microsoft Windows XP" tags.
I then typed "Linux" in their search box, and although it looked very
encouraging wrt to how HP envisages Linux, they mentioned only Red Hat,
Sudse and Mandrake/Mandriva, never Ubuntu. And even then, it was all
about corporate desktop machines and/or workstations, but never the home
In a last attempt, I put "Ubuntu" in their search box, which didn't
return a single page !
So I am very disappointed ! :o(
Did I misunderstand HP's intentions ?! Or is it just that they have not
yet started marketing Ubuntu machines, maybe they are waiting for
