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.

Mike,

There is not enough applause for your team of engineers. You are filling a big gap in the marketplace, and I hope your business plan pays off for you and for our community at large.

This level of hardware and open-source software integration has yet to be seen with x86 based computers. I admit there are systems that approach it, but if I remember correctly there is not one who achieves it to the extent that Apple has shown with PowerPCs.

Best wishes.
