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 told me about this a few months ago, and I'm very excited by it.

The Helium is a sweet tablet laptop, and we've got a mailing list for running Debian on it already:

It ships with Lycoris linux, and the laptop is available from other dealers under other names/brands, including with Windows bundled. Element sells it without.

The only things not working under Linux are the zc301 chip webcam and the 4in1 card reader, neither of which has linux drivers
