Looking for an “out-of-the-box experience” tablet with Linux pre-installed? EmperorLinux.com is offering two tablet models from Lenovo, the X60T and X61T; and one tablet model from Panasonic, the Tough Book CF-19 series. Each is customizable and available with dual Windows XP/Vista and Linux configurations. They also come with one year of tech support. Being an IT professional that is not “married” to a particular OS, I have to think that this is a very welcome sight. Now if only Apple would hurry up and join the Tablet PC/Touch revolution!
I’m gonna have to file this one under “below the radar”, I mean even Warner did not pick up on it.
