Original OSNews Interviews What happens when ex-Lycoris employees join a Linux-friendly hardware computer reseller? Apparently, a new desktop Linux distro with a kick: the hardware that comes with it is meant to give you the Apple experience. ION Linux is a Debian-based distro that is meant to work well with the hardware it sells with. Read on for our interview with Element Computer's Mike Hjorleifsson (one of the founders and CTO) regarding their new upcoming products and a screenshot of ION.

This nearly sounds too good to be true. Finally Linux users won't be asking "does it run on linux". They'll just go to the ION web site, buy the piece of hardware and use it. This, IMHO, is the proper way to provide computers. It's nice to see a company to take a courageous step and just support a controlled set of hardware instead of trying to do the impossible task of supporting as much hardware as possible.
