|HP HOWTO: Utilisation and Configuration Guide of HP Products under Linux (Version 0.93)|
|Prev||Chapter 3. Linux and HP products||Next|
HP became recently concious of the importance taken by Linux and free software in general, and on its machines particularly. Thus a web site dedicated to Linux in HP environment is now available at http://www.hp.com/go/linux.
In France, there is for a longer time a site on these themes, under the responsability of Jacques Misselis <Jacques_Misselis@hp.com>, hosted by l'�cole Centrale de Lyon at the address http://hpwww.ec-lyon.fr/hpeduc/education.
On the other side, the firm Medasys , for which I worked between 1996 and 2000, put at disposition of the community a certain number of informations since 1997, available at http://www.medasys.fr/linux. This HOWTO is the result of this work.
HP also realized a synthesis document (PDF format) concerning his position in front of Linux, the White Paper HP Linux Strategy.
HP is a member of Linux International.
HP also communicates through its web site around Linux and free software. You'll find some links here.
