    Phoronix: Pre-Loaded Linux PCs Continue Increasing - TUXEDO Computers Sets Up New Offices

    From System76 setting up their own manufacturing facility for Linux desktops to Dell offering more Linux laptop options, the demand for pre-loaded Linux PCs continues to increase. One of the smaller Linux PC vendors also now expanding is German-based TUXEDO Computers...

      You can always replace the OS with another distro well in the knowledge that the hardware is well supported by Linux.

                  The biggest Problem for me is the poor support.
                  hardware quality is only ok.

                    85-90% of what's on the market, even more-so in regards to workstation grade hardware and desktops. Pretty much all desktops, workstations, SBCs, routers, etc work on Linux OOTB with next to no or no issues.

                    Laptops and their networking hardware and/or custom keyboards/input methods usually cause the biggest Linux issues and Dell, System76, Lenovo, and more have us covered pretty well. After that, it's systems that come with brand new AMD GPUs and the user doesn't have any amd-staging experience to run that until their driver gets mainlined.

                    Basically, all one has to do is research their laptop ahead of purchase (which one should do regardless of the OS) and check if their system's kernel is new enough to un their new AMD GPU.

                    AMD could do a better job on that by listing a minimal Linux kernel version on their product spec pages. This is what they list for my RX 580:

                    Code:
                      Windows 10 - 64-Bit Edition
                      Windows 7 - 32-Bit Edition
                      Windows 7 - 64-Bit Edition
                      [B]Ubuntu x86 64-Bit[/B]
                      [B]Linux x86_64[/B]
                    Ubuntu could be "Ubuntu x86_64 16.04+" and Linux could be "Linux x86_64 4.15+".
