LXer: Surprise! Microsoft Isnít Blocking Linux on Lenovo Laptops

Published at LXer:

It was easy to place the blame on Microsoft in a knee-jerk reaction ó and it didnít help that a Lenovo representative placed blame firmly in Redmondís lap. It appears, however, that Microsoftís not involved, and Lenovoís not to blame either.
