From everything I have seen System76 has great customer support, are flexible and they seem to always be having a great time.

How I first heard about them was 7 years ago, shortly after I bought an HP laptop (and went through plenty of hurdles with Linux), when I wanted to get a Linux logo for the laptop to replace the Windows Vista logo it came with. I quickly came upon System76 and the free stickers they send out. Been a fan ever since. Wish I would had found them before I purchased the HP.

I'm curious, do you already have the laptop that will be given away, or will it be delivered straight from system76? If the latter, can upgrades be made (at winner's expense)?

Great question!

I reached out to System76 and they said they will allow upgrades. (At the owner's expense, of course.)

Very excited to have this System76 Linux OS.

These are nice. Heard of them a while ago and completely forgot about them until now

System76 is one of the best, if you want out of the box support for linux. It just works, no tinkering required.

Wow. This is so awesome. Let me send some more users your way via Twitter.

Been looking at System76 for a while now. I like that you can swap drives and other components on many of the models. So many other new laptops go for thinness and heavily restrict upgrades and component changes.

I have heard interesting things about System76 laptops, hope to check it out soon ;)

Wow thats a great product and a must have

For a next gift, post the result of the draw ...

Is the winner going to be announced?
