weird small linux manufacturers: duuuuuude try a drag of this one, maaaaaaaan, it'll make you see the bits in your miiiiiiiiiind

@unlofl @brion >weird small linux manufacturers So, like, two of them.

@happymoomoo @brion @unlofl

- Purism
- Lemote ("smallish")
- Pine64
- ZaReason
- Clevo

And about several dozen others from Shenzhen, Taipei, Chennai, and Hanoi among other hub cities

@cypnk @happymoomoo @brion @unlofl

Do tuxedocomputers, system76, schenker count? S76 even has a factory now.

@zladuric There's some cross-pollination in hardware. E.G. System76 and Tuxedo both use Clevo as their OEM, but with different specs (nicer screens, more memory etc...)

@cypnk yes, I'm asking would you count them as Linux vendors?
Especially given that System 76 even has it's own factory to assemble computers:

@zladuric Of course they're Linux vendors. In fact I would count any company that sells at least 50% of their hardware in Linux offerings under that label
