Lenovo is to start selling Fedora versions of ThinkPads. Announced via the Fedora magazine, Lenovo has agreed to begin selling Fedora editions of the ThinkPad P1 Gen 2, P53 and X1 Gen 8. Part of Lenovo's Linux Community Series, the three machines will come pre-loaded with Fedora 32 Workstation.

According to Matthew Miller, the machines running Fedora 32 will only come pre-loaded with official Fedora repositories. Practically speaking, this means the P1 Gen 2 and P53 will not have NVIDIA drivers installed by default. Naturally, these can be enabled by downloading software from proprietary sources.

Miller notes that the ThinkPad Fedora editions will be available globally. Seen as a pilot program, Lenovo may expand its Fedora offering if uptake is strong. There is no word on availability or pricing yet, though.
