System76 Computer Manufacturer
System 76 is the first company to provide the Ubuntu Server with OS Preinstall. The 2012 version of System76 has received excellent feedback. The main reasons for this are hardware-compatible and quality of components.
History: In 2003, Fetzer registered the system76.com domain to sell computers with the Linux operating system installed, in mid-2005, the most important and most demanding issue of Richell and Fetzer in the early stages of the company was that of the Linux distribution used. Their quest to bring Linux to the mass market required the choice of the best distribution for their customers: Red Hat Enterprise Linux, OpenSUSE, Yoper and other distributions were considered and shelved. Ubuntu was initially shelved, but Richell and Fetzer quickly changed their opinion after evaluating it in more detail. In addition, Richell is particularly fond of the business model of Canonical completely free software, which was supported by commercial support as necessary. The first computers sold by System76 were supplied with Ubuntu 5.10 Breezy Badger pre-installed.
The name: The number 76 in the company name alludes to the year 1776, the year in which the American Revolution took place. The company's founders also hope to turn on an open source revolution, ultimately leading to a situation where consumers are not primarily based on proprietary software.
