Hello all Linux Fans!


Hey all! My name is Wolf & I own a company called LinuxPC+, a resource for Linux & open source software users of all skill levels as well as a marketplace for affordable computers designed & built specifcally to run Linux. I have joied LQ to gain and share knowledge, experiences etc with Linux users. I will likely ask many questions & I hope everyone is willing to ask questions of me as well! Ask me easy stuff, but even better, challenge me with difficult questions!

That post is almost an advertisment for your company.

What do you mean by that? You'd be running the same 'off the shelf' CPUs, chipsets, GPU/APU/video chips, networking chips, HDDs, etc. as everybody else......

Hi Cascade,
First of all, I apoligize if the post comes of as an advertisement, however, I amposting on behalf of my company after all. Besides, this was just an introductory post. I will refrain from plugging my company i posts except where I feel it is necessary.
As for running the same off the shelf hardware, you are correct. What I meant is that I throughly test AND research every component I consider installing in my line of computers. I select only those devices that are known to run with linux better than most others. While I will not reveal the details, I have created an extremely intensive evaluation process. Doing so allows me to design machines that will achieve optimum performance with Linux.
I hope this clears up your confusion & thank you for your feedback!

Pity you wont reveal the details.....but I can take a few guesses. I still wouldnt call it 'design', its just 'specing' IMO.

Secrets

Sorry I cant reveal my exact methods, call it a business secret if you will, LOL! But I have to question this statement: "I still wouldnt call it 'design', its just 'specing'" What I do is the very definition of design. I don't have to develop my own HDD, CPU, GPU, etc to "design" a computer. HP doesnt develop many of the components in their systems, yet they "design" their own models. The only difference between my models & those of major brands like HP, Dell, Toshiba, etc is that these companies "design" systems to run Windows, selecting components known torun well under the particular version of Windpws that will be installed. I design my systems for Linux, selecting components known to run in their optimal form under Linux. I create each system, give it a model name, set an MSRP, create marketing, etc etc etc, just like any other PC manufacturer.
While I am sure you did not intend this, your remark was quite insulting. I have gotten amazingly positive response to my upcoming lines. Responses that prove the Linux community is hungry for systems designed to run teir fav OS! Oh, & with the upcoming release of Windows 8, manufacturers who sell linux based systems with high levels of product support may very well become high demand!

Which bit was insulting? I'd assume you mean 'its just specing'.

You've not the only person who specs computers...and I dont use this forum to publicise/advertise the systems I make.
