Fujitsu Computer Systems also announced a distribution agreement with EmperorLinux, a leading Linux reseller that specializes in the installation and configuration of the Linux operating system on notebooks.

"Fujitsu customers have expressed interest in gaining support for the Linux operating system," said Paul Moore, senior director of mobile product marketing, Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation. "With Novell YES certification for SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop on four popular LifeBook Series convertible tablet PCs and notebooks, Fujitsu provides these customers the opportunity to select the highly reliable and durable Fujitsu notebook that meets their business requirements."

"YES certification on a range of Fujitsu LifeBook Series notebooks is an important addition to the lineup of systems that support SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop," said Justin Steinman, director of marketing for Linux and Open Platform Solutions at Novell. "The leading role Fujitsu plays in the convertible laptop market provides another opportunity for SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop to continue to grow its presence in the enterprise."
