Comment I am gonna start my own ask slashdot thread (Score 1, Interesting) 488

Practically speaking and forgetting every small petty argument. What would it take to make ubuntu (Or any other linux Distro) a mainstream desktop OS. (Highlight DESKTOP) If you were in charge of it or could give it direction what would you do to make it work, accepted and profitable. I am hoping this will be an interesting exercise.

while i agreed with latitudes for a while some of the ones i have recently seen in our firm like the e5500 have sub par build quality. the lid has become wobbly already and many have run into multiple issues. not that thinkpads dont have these at all but latitudes just dont seem as solid as before.

this.
when i buy windows i go lenovo. the machines are still built like tanks and work fantastic.
i actually convinced my boss to let me buy a lenovo in a company of dells. mind you others are or may be better but lenovo just works perfectly for me. my x61s has been running solid for 3 years now and i just got the x201 which should tide me through for another couple of years.
if in the ultra portable space try the x220 (to be released soon) otherwise try the T series. u cant go wrong with either option.
For the AC above. checkout the x220
