More makers for the Linux 'people's notebook'
NZheretic writes "Demand for the Linux notebook launched in Thailand last week has been so high that other vendors may have to be brought in, according to the daily Bangkok Post. The Information and Communications Ministry, which is behind the drive to increase computer ownership, is said to be in talks with Dell Computer and the Association of Thai Computer Manufacturers, among others. The Ministry expects that around 300,000 Linux notebooks will be sold in the current phase of the program, along with another 700,000 Linux desktop PCs."
