I was browsing PC World recently (simply because I was bored one day) and picked up a USB flash disk to read the system requirements (OK, I was *really* bored)

I was pleasantly surprised to read the following:

I had a similar experience with something that came included with our smartboard, it had a tux on it and said it was compatable with Linux Smile

And out of the latest Linux Magazine I bought a couple of days ago (if I'm allowed to mention a competitor on this site!) fell an HP advertising leaflet proclaiming "HP and Linux - affordable, resilient, high-performance business solutions. For more information, visit www.hp.com/linux".

We are making progress Very Happy

The HDD enclosure I bought recently mentioned Linux on the box, too. No instructions for Linux inside, but that's presumably because they know we Linux sorts already know what we're doing.

It's not too unusual, I find, that there is some brief mention of Linux on the box for a piece of hardware, but as has been observed there are no instructions inside the box. The only exception I have come across is for a PCI hardware modem, presumably because it is aimed in large measure at Linux users.
