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.

I smell a bad "Copy Marketing" plan
by Tom Ahasverussen on Tue 13th Apr 2004 22:18 UTC

So the guy realises the Apple marketing model is good? and wants to copy it for a Linux based version of the Apple fairytale?

The baddest part of it, is that he expects the same excellence that Apple has earned over many years.
Guess what, you will surely fail this venture...

Seams like a newbie marketing guy to me..

Here's a hint:
Some people say that "they should look at the past to predicy the future".. (Apple Model)
This is NOT true about the IT-Industry, especially because "OpenSource" has apeared and changed the math of software/hardware business today.

I would use the force of opensource instead of removing it.
