One of the newer supports of is eRacks, a company specializing in open-source systems -- primarily rackmounts and other high performance hardware -- since 1999.

eRacks primarily focuses upon pushing high-end, rackmount servers that run various Linux distributions (Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Fedora, et al) along with popular BSD operating systems like NetBSD and FreeBSD. However, eRacks also offers a limited range of branded laptops/notebooks, firewall servers, and other products. Their newest laptops from eRacks are Linux-loaded versions of the ASUS Zenbook laptops and ultrabooks. My main system right now in fact is a Haswell-based Zenbook. Servers from eRacks have options for both AMD and Intel processors.

Thanks to eRacks for being the newest sponsor, in particular for some of our US traffic for those that have JavaScript disabled / NoScript. Those wishing to lean more about eRacks open-source and Linux friendly hardware can visit
