I recently emailed System76, a provider of GNU Linux computers running
Ubuntu, with regards to running gNewSense on their machines. I am
forwarding their response to this list in case anybody is interested.

Hi, Oliver.

Thank you for your interest in System76.

We do not install or support gNewSense, and I've not gotten any
feedback from customers indicating they have tried it. You may want to
post on our forums to see if anyone is using it...

We have to apply a few patches to the Starling via our System76
driver, so I would be surprised if it worked out of the box with
gNewSense. However, it shouldn't be very hard to get it working.

Best Regards,
Tom Aaron

I'm interested in purchasing one of your netbook machines when I begin
my university course in September this year.

However, I would like to run a fully free operating system, namely
gNewSense. Can you tell me the exact specifications for your netbooks,
whether they will run gNewSense (including any limitations), and if
so, do you have any intentions of offering gNewSense preinstalled on
your machines (preinstallation is not a prerequisite to me purchasing
a machine, being able to run gNewSense however, is)?
