How to get Meego/GNU/Linux OS from lenovo on supported hardware ?

Hi

 

As a lenovo g470 owner I just discovered that chineese store sell a version with Meego/Gnu/Linux 

 

http://appserver.lenovo.com.cn/Lenovo_Product_Detail.aspx?gdsid=A0300015139 

 

“Operating system Genuine Meego Linux Simplified Chinese”

 

I wish I could buy that one instead the OEM ms windows7 I dont need ...

 

But my question is how to get the official lenovo meego os ? dl cd or dvd ?

 

Also any meego developer or user fell free to join this thread and say hi

 

Regards

Hi

I don't think you will find a MeeGo image from lenovo if you exclude the Chinese site. MeeGo no longer exists either,but you can download an image from here

https://meego.com/downloads

I used it on an S10-2 and on a X220,It runs very well.No hitches as of now.





Cheers and regards,

Re: How to get Meego/GNU/Linux OS from lenovo on supported hardware ?

As a meego developer I know where to get the public packages, but I was expecting that lenovo added some stuff for better support on that shipped version...

 

I any users tests a  meego lenovo system , feel free to review it here ....

 

 

Anyway this is a good start for us that vendors try to promote other system, i am not sure the whole world is happy with a single OS , at least I am not and I am forced to buy it even If I have no plan to use it ... any tracks to get a refund for that as the microsoft licence suggests ?

 

But here, let's keep focusing on leveno GNU/Linux projects :-) any involvement into upcoming tizen ?
