According to an announcement at Linux World Expo, MandrakeSoft and
Hewlett-Packard Co. will work together to
"promote and develop" desktop Linux solutions. The press release from
the companies states that they will move to
certify usage of Mandrake Linux on HP's line of Business-oriented PC's.

Through the agreement, HP will be allowed to market and distribute a
"premium" and "lite" offering from MandrakeSoft.
The former package includes 2 Mandrake Linux CD's with technical
support, while the latter seems to be simply an
OEM install of the Linux distribution.

MandrakeSoft's CEO, Jacques Le Marios commented "In the course of its
alliance strategy with primary players of the market,
 MandrakeSoft is delighted with this new alliance with HP. The agreement
allows us to provide key accounts with global solutions." No
 word from HP was available at press time.

I got the article from:
There is a poll there on is this Good/soso/bad/worthless

So please go and vote !!!!!!!!!!
