I’ll be publishing a few articles around the german hardware vendor TUXEDO Computers shortly. Before I proceed with those here a short disclaimer: I’m not affiliated with TUXEDO Computers in any ways nor do I have any financial benefits from talking and blogging about them. However TUXEDO Computers is a member of the OSB Alliance - a german organization of which I’m one of the members of the board. In the past TUXEDO Computers has sponsored hardware to give as a price alongside the OSBAR - the Open Source Business Award. Aside from that TUXEDO Computers has provided hardware to me in order to testdrive those systems with various open source operating systems coming from the BSD family. As such the blogposts are a result of me having easy access to the hardware as well as TUXEDO being very open and friendly towards open source developers.
