When we read this, we thought: That's it! This can't go any further! Ubuntu deserves to be shiped with special hardware. Hardware that is build for Ubuntu. A computer is an unity of hardware and software, therefore it's important that both parts are tuned for each other. A leading operating system craves leading hardware.
How Rockiger is working?
We are giving people their freedom back. We combine Ubuntu with laptops. We take laptops which are playing along perfectly with Ubuntu and combine them with Ubuntu. With the money me make, we sponsor important open-source projects to make Ubuntu even better.
What Rockiger is doing?
The SatchBook is a laptop, which is developed with Ubuntu in mind. We have choosen hardware components that playalong very well with Ubuntu. There is no need to install any kind of graphics card driver und suspend/resume is working fine, too.
