When we set out creating MX Linux 6 years ago, we honestly never thought a day would come when MX would be found preinstalled on vendor-offered PC. That was for the likes of the big boys like Ubuntu, not for little guys like MX.
Fast forward 6 years. The PC business is starting to see more and more Linux offerings preinstalled from some big name vendors and some big name Linux distros.
Star Labs, a UK based laptop vendor, is offering their laptops not only with Ubuntu preinstalled, but also with several other smaller distributions, including MX Linux. You can check out the offerings at https://starlabs.systems. Their offerings look pretty compelling hardware-wise, from the less expensive mark III to the higher-end the mk IV (currently in pre-order for July shipping).
We are especially excited because modern, current-generation laptops are offered for sale with MX Linux preinstalled. We never expected it. But we are very glad to see it.
Call it a win for the little guys.
