Ubuntu To Ship On Lenovo Thinkpad L450 In India - Welcome Ubuntu

I am very happy with the news that yesterday Canonical declared the launch of Ubuntu in India on Lenovo Thinkpad L450. Yes, you heard right! I was waiting for them to come in India and now wait is over! The laptops may be start shipping early this month. Let’s take a deeper look at the Lenovo Thinkpad L450 on which Ubuntu is being shipped. Ubuntu Istiqbal/Swagat hai! (We welcome Ubuntu).


Finally, Ubuntu is on the way to India with the first ever joint launch of Ubuntu and Lenovo in India.  Ubuntu is already holding a large amount of users in tech developing country India. Canonical says –“…another OEM coming into the fold in a region where Ubuntu already possesses a strong foothold.”

Lenovo will be shipping Ubuntu preloaded devices starting with Thinkpad L450 laptop from early this month. The laptops will be available to purchase from selected commercial resellers and distributors throughout the region at prices starting from INR 40,000.

The deal will help the community to grow in India. One of the main reasons that is the most powerful OS, Linux is still away from desktop computers is that it’s not shipped by hardware manufacturers. PCs or Laptops manufacturing companies mostly ship Windows and that’s the main reason that Windows is on top in India. It’s good that Canonical has started making such deals to raise Linux and take it on the desktop too. Although outside India there have also been such deals. Probably you heard of Dell™ XPS™ 13 laptops, developer edition and Dell Precision M3800 mobile workstation, developer edition being shipped preloaded with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Although Ubuntu is already used in India I hope this effort will bring more college students and developers.. Give us your opinion what you think about the deal and what role it is going to play in Indian Linux OS marketing. Share your thought/ideas with us in the comment below.
