*Linux Laptop Wiki [Rebooted]*
The aim of the website is to provide a central wiki to post experiences with Linux on the model of laptop / notebook you're using.
Linlap.info is an attempt to 'reboot' the abandoned and spammed linlap dot com which is now unusable.
Please consider participating on building a new "HQ" sending in your model / experiences!
Any help appreciated!
