EmperorLinux provides the finest Linux installation that you will find on a laptop computer. We will give you an out-of-the-box Linux laptop experience of the same quality that you get when buying a laptop from a major manufacturer. (Or an even better experience, since we'll treat you like a person every time you talk to us, and the laptop will run Linux.)

EmperorLinux Gets Your Laptop

We want to ensure that you have the best possible experience with Linux on your new EmperorLinux laptop. With that goal in mind, we prepare your laptop for you.

  • We install your selected distribution. We install the base version of the Linux distribution you selected. This provides all the standard user-level software packages you'll use day-to-day on your system, such as gcc, Perl, OpenOffice.org, GIMP, web browsers, and mail readers. We set up the remainder of the partitions to your specifications. If you opted for dual boot, we shrink the manufacturers' Windows partition to the size you wanted.
  • We install our laptop-specific kernel. All EmperorLinux systems come with a custom kernel specially tailored to support all of the hardware on your laptop.
  • We configure your Linux distribution. We install additional software packages and provide configuration files to ensure full hardware support for your laptop under Linux.
  • We install and configure internal accessories. If you order internal accessories with your EmperorLinux laptop, such as RAM, we will install them for you and perform the necessary configuration.
  • We test your Linux laptop. We run a battery of tests on your freshly-installed Linux laptop, including X, sound, networking (wired and wireless), and more.
