Linux Hardware companies don't tend to have their own Linux distributions. IBM uses Linux everywhere, but they don't have their own Linux. Dell will be happy to sell you notebooks and netbooks with Ubuntu or a workstation or server with RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux). But, no major OEM (original equipment manufacturer) has had a house-brand Linux... until now. HP has recently bought not one, but two Linux distributions. Surely HP is not getting into the Linux distribution business? Are they?

IBM does not use Linux everywhere, I´ve worked with & for IBM and their use of Linux is largely minor -even though since 2nd half of 2009 it has started to promote it internally- and is not very OSS friendly.
