HP announces support for Debian Linux
HP the first major hardware maker to align itself with the noncommercial Linux offering
Hewlett-Packard is throwing its support behind the Debian Linux distribution, the first major hardware maker to align itself with the noncommercial community-based Linux offering.HP says it will support Debian Linux on its ProLiant and HP BladeSystem servers, and what it says is the industry's first Debian Linux customisable thin client from a major vendor, the new HP t5725 Thin Client server.
