Lenovo Says “No Linux For You!”

Lenovo Says “No Linux For You!”

Lenovo is making some high end Windows-powered laptops and desktops these days. In fact their Signature Edition PCs would be a great example of this. However, if you think you’re going to install Linux on one of these models, think again. Reportedly Lenovo has blocked users from installing anything other than Windows 10. They use a proprietary hard disk driver that is currently only available on Windows 10. The open source community may figure out how to replicate this and then it may be possible, but for now, Lenovo is saying “no Linux for you!”
