    Phoronix: Linux 5.10 To Bring Some Improvements For Newer Lenovo Laptops

    With Lenovo working to expand their Linux line-up and already Fedora being offered on the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8, more Linux support improvements are on the way...

    being a loyal ThinkPad user that sounds great, altough I'm already almost 100% satistfied with current hw support.

    they only thing I can see improved is the T480S docking station support, which sometimes is a bit buggy.
    never had a problem with the docking station of the T420 and X220.

      I do not understand why Lenovo do not offer too their Chromebook hardware, already with coreboot and prepared for liGNUx with Fedora.

      I bet that those cheap laptops would work better with Fedora than with Chrome OS and will sell very well on those markets where Chromebooks are not as available as in USA.

        Because there is no margin in that price class to fund ongoing Linux support. That is why most of the Linux work is happening in the ThinkPad line, where the average margin is higher.

            Unlike HP 4$$holes who do not care. I made mistake by purchasing HP a year ago..., but never again.

              I'm really happy to see that improved Linux support for Lenovo is on the way. I assume Lenovo is in one way or another putting money into it.

                Would be nice if they finally add support for their 3G modem included in the Gen8... The 7560 modem isn't of much use for now...
                Hopefully that will change someday.

                  You mean the code from Komodia they allowed ("SSL Hijacker"). I don't think that was ever installed on a ThinkPad. Just the lower tiered consumer devices.

                    because Chromebooks actually sell better?
