Lenovo may still recommend the Vista operating system to visitors to its Web site, but the PC vendor has also introduced a range of Linux-based laptops. 

The company will offer Linux from Novell on a range of its machines, catering to both low-end and high-end users, and expects them to account for about 5% of its shipments within a few years.
Lenovo is the second PC manufacturer to take the Linux plunge, following Dell's decision to pre-load Ubuntu on three on its notebooks earlier this year.
Dell was responding to customew requests.
Lenovo is expected to announced its Linux laptops this week at LinuxWorld and begin selling them next quarter.
