Linux on Laptops manufacturer report card updated

Werner Heuser writes - "The MobiliX survey of laptop manufacturers and their Linux status was updated. It contains a list of more than 100 manufacturers and their Linux support.
Unfortunately even in this times of Linux success, support by laptop manufacturers is seldom, or if provided not much helpful. Though the marketing departments of some major manufacturers have announced Linux support for their laptops, it wasn't developed or silently dropped. Because of the rapid development (every manufacturer creates new models almost every three months) and the specific hardware of mobile computer devices (see Linux Mobile Guide - LMG), it's important to have current and reliable information about their Linux compatibility. The update contains corrections of URLs, addition of manufacturers and pointers to Linux on Laptops, where appropriate as well as a survey of OEM manufacturer relations between different brand names."
