NewsForge has checked out HP's first US all-Linux PC
've been itching to get my hands on an HP Compaq d220 ever since I saw it announced in early July. The d220 appeared to be the first preloaded Linux desktop made available in the US by a tier-one OEM since Dell's half-hearted attempt was taken off the market. Alas, from my hands-on testing I learned that HP is not preloading Linux on the d220, nor on any other desktops sold in the U.S. Instead, if ordered with the Linux option, the d220 is shipped with an empty hard drive and two CDs containing Mandrake 9.1 Light.
