    Following in the footsteps of other major computer manufacturers such as Dell, Lenovo (formerly IBM’s PC division) is set to launch a new line of notebooks at the end of the year which will come pre-loaded with Novell’s SUSE Linux operating system. Customers will be able to obtain direct support and updates for the hardware and software running Linux, with the machines being offered to both commercial firms and individuals. This announcement coincides with the start of the LinuxWorld conference in San Francisco earlier today and should help to mix things up with Microsoft a little bit as the open source competition continues to gain momentum.
