Intel moving it’s chip designes to Linux on Laptop

Linux is widely used in electronic design automation (EDA) and computer-aided design (CAD), especially in chip and circuit design. Software from Synopsys Inc., Mentor Graphics Corp. and market leader Cadence Design Systems Inc. mostly run on the open-source operating system.

Intel served as the primary beta tester for the SUSE-equipped notebooks and is expected to eventually buy “thousands” of the laptops, according to Bill Iori, worldwide manager for ThinkPads at Lenovo.

PC makers have long been reluctant to preinstall Linux on their computers on a large scale because of concerns about offending Microsoft Corp. and uncertainty over which flavor of Linux to install or whether the market size justifies the cost.  >>>>
