Lenovo Will Sell Ubuntu Laptops In India

puddingebola notes the news, as carried by Tom’s Hardware, that Lenovo will soon ship laptops preloaded with Ubuntu in India.

“The first of these systems will be the Lenovo Thinkpad L450, featuring only one of two CPUs, but the selection may widen over time and expand to other countries …Overall, switching to Ubuntu reduces the system cost considerably. Currently, the standard L450 system with Windows 8.1 Pro utilizing a Core i3, 4 GB of RAM, and a 500 GB HDD costs 59724 INR ($943.02 USD). An Ubuntu version of the system with the same hardware specs, however, will only cost 48000 INR ($757.91 USD).

Linux Kernel 4.1 Will Be an LTS Release

New submitter prisoninmate writes: The Linux Foundation’s LinuxLTSI (Long-Term Support Initiative) group has confirmed on Twitter that the next LTS version of the Linux kernel will be 4.1. The information has also been confirmed by Greg Kroah-Hartman, a renowned kernel developer who is currently maintaining several kernel branches, including a few LTS ones. When Linux kernel 4.1 is released, it will become the LTS version of 2015 and the most advanced long-term support release. This is significant because the LTSI releases are (or will be) everywhere, in a “Linux is everywhere” sense. As the initiative’s page puts it, “The LTSI tree is expected to be a usable base for the majority of embedded systems, as well as the base for ecosystem players (e.g., semiconductor vendors, set-vendors, software component vendors, distributors, and system/application framework providers). … The goal is to reduce the number of private trees currently in use in the CE industry and encourage more collaboration and sharing of development resources.”
