The Fedora and Lenovo partnership is about more than just selling Thinkpads with Linux pre-installed. In this special video interview, Fedora lead Matthew Miller and Lenovo's Senior Linux Software Engineer Mark Pearson join me to discuss a TON of details.

There are SEVERAL surprises along the way, and most of them are going to make you jump for joy. This is how Linux gets treated like a first-class citizen.

@Linux4Everyone nice show! Was there no mention of Dell's developer experience XPS though?

@Linux4Everyone I currently have fedora 32 running on my laptop it has been a really solid release.
Side note who at Lenovo do I ask, for Ryzen/Fedora laptops?

@Linux4Everyone Ever since I saw the Ryzen 4000-series processors at CES I have been unpatiently waiting for a laptop upgrade and I was considering the lenovo Legion Y740S, which I would get with fedora if given the option to.

@Linux4Everyone thanks for the interview. That whole Nvidia conversation was about to give me a stroke until Mathew Miller took a measured, but important stand. I appreciate your trying to clarify the Nouveau situation as well. Also, no interview with Lenovo should go without asking their rep (who keeps talking about customer experience being important to them) when they are going to stop hardcoding what hardware people can install via their closed source bios. Finally, what about core/libreboot support?
