It's the first time that an industry leader publicly announces the availability of Linux on a desktop PC.

This is the result of a worldwide agreement between MandrakeSoft and HP. The Mandrake Linux 9.1 operating system is now available on a complete range of HP desktop PCs. This includes (or will include) the following machines: HP Compaq 220, HP Compaq 230, HP Compaq 325, HP Compaq D330 and HP Compaq D530.
