Linux While at the HP Technology Forum 2010, a particular breakout session stood out in that it was all about Linux. In fact, I've stolen the title of the presentation and made it the name of this article. Bdale Garbee, a very comprehensive and impressive individual (also the HP Open Source & Linux Chief Technologist), gave a talk on the basics of Linux and HP's involvement in it.

It's hard for me to believe that. All of my acquaintances that happen to work for HP say that HP is a 100% windows shop.

Remember HP is huge huge company.

but to give you an idea of the diversity there is even a VPN client for Mac and Linux for folks to get internally. Trust me HP uses Linux a lot. It's just the personal PC space aka the best buy machines where there is arguablly little market (even red hat seems to agree) that hp doesn't focus on with Linux. But with palm purchase that may change.

Depends on where at HP you are looking at. Some of their big/pricey products like HPOM and NNM run natively on Linux, and they also have a quite decent Linux printer support.

And then you also have <strike>huevos</strike> webos.
