This should come as no surprise – but HP has launched its first “Linux” notebook computer. Techtree.com writes “Today’s announcement of our expanding Linux customer base, new products and services, along with the world’s first notebook PC pre-installed with Linux, marks our continued momentum in the Linux market and with our customers”, said Martin Fink, vice president, Linux, HP.
