"Intel has made substantial efforts to boost Linux, which most often runs on computers using the company's processors, but those efforts have been largely confined to powerful networked computers called servers. The chipmaker warmed up to desktop PC makers when partners in the Asian countries started requesting more help with desktop Linux, company spokesman Scott McLaughlin said.
Now when Intel ships the components out of which companies assemble PCs--often called "white box" systems because they're from companies with little-known brand names--it will include a kit of software and instructions to ease Linux installation. It's a strategy Intel has used for years with Windows."
