    Don't know.

    Tuxedo does hint at the fact that they are testing things and selecting the ones that work best
    https://www.tuxedocomputers.com/en/vorteile.tuxedo
    https://www.tuxedocomputers.com/en/L...ardware.tuxedo

    And in general other Linux prebuilt PC companies like Purism have their own UEFI firmware where they enable or disable things (settings not available to the user) like for example Purism is shipping Intel ME disabled.
    Tuxedo seems to have performance profiles in UEFI https://www.tuxedocomputers.com/en/I...rofiles.tuxedo and a custom fan control application that is talking to the laptop's EC (embedded controller), that is not a common thing for a modern laptop afaik.
    They also have a custom UEFI interface I've not seen in other laptops (yes it's still a vendor UEFI from Insyde, you can't do without for a commercial product), https://www.tuxedocomputers.com/en/I...BIOS-EC.tuxedo

    and they say you can also "disable" Intel ME in their firmware https://www.tuxedocomputers.com/en/I...-Engine.tuxedo

    Disable to the extent that is possible to disable anyway.

    Again this is NOT standard for most laptops.

    They also offer OpenSUSE https://www.tuxedocomputers.com/en/TUXEDO-WebFAI.tuxedo

    And how would he have found that out?

    Did he buy one?

    How dare they prioritize what actually nets them some money instead than doing niche stuff that may or may not even matter.

    No need for multidesktopism when you can differentiate anyway.
    Quit this bs, this is just like with Android. The OEM is profiting from hardware sales, they have no real reason to do more than cosmetic changes to make it look different.

    If you are actually making a distro things change. You want to cater to multiple kinds of people, the Standard Linux Desktop is not flexible enough for all Linux users.

    Can you please stop posting bullshit? You aren't helping GNOME

    Because vendors don't pay shit to Canonical?
    Why would Canonical host packages and ISO to download for third parties?
    Why would a third party even want to pay for that when they will have their own infrastructure they are paying for anyway?
