HP to ship Ubuntu PCs, serious about Linux

Filed under
Linux

The HP Linux and Open Source roadshow rolled into Johannesburg earlier this week with the message that Linux is now a "standard" product offering from the company. The annual roadshow, which travels the world spreading the HP/Linux message, this year focused heavily on examples of where Linux has been successful in business, including inside the HP business.

HP's Emea open source technologist Michael Schulz opened the show with a brief history of Linux and open source software before laying out a view of where HP is using Linux for its own operations. Schulz said the company today has as many as 15000 Linux-based devices on its own internal networks and uses free software for many critical roles from its mail system, to DNS servers, and even its LaserJet development laboratories.

Schulz said that HP's entire email infrastructure -- including a webmail client based on Squirrelmail -- is run on Linux and delivers in the region of three terrabytes of mail annually.
