According to this
article over at ZDNet, the folks of HP will start selling Mandriva Linux based PCs in LaTam territories like Mexico (
), Argentina and Brazil.
While these may sound like good news, I can only wait to see how will they ship the whole package. One of the main reasons I avoid buying/recommending HP PCs is that they tend to hurt
the image of other products with their packaging, like in the case of AMD based machines where they include lower quality components along with the CPU to be less "flashy" than a Pentium IV/Celeron of the same class, especially in the memory and optical drives departments (has always gotten into my nerves, that attitude!).
Anyway, only time will tell how these offerings will be like, and if they are attractive enough or not for the general public down here in good ol' LaTam.
