"The search for a Linux laptop is over. I have been using Linux for over 25 years. Having the right hardware and the right software has always been a challenge. It has always been doable but in a crafty, artisanal, time-consuming way. It was an art. Kubuntu Focus has managed to industrialize this process so that the user has a similar or better experience than on a Mac or Windows." — Jean-Georges Perrin, author of Spark In Action
