Lenovo is joining the ranks of manufacturers allowing you to opt to have a Linux distro pre-loaded and supported by the OEM. They chose Fedora, which to me was a little bit of an interesting choice due to its bleeding-edge nature. So far, this is only going to be available on a few models: ThinkPad P1 Gen2, ThinkPad X1 Gen8, ThinkPad P53. However, may introduce it on other models depending on how this pilot turns out. I have the article linked below for anyone interested:

Any progress is good progress. Definitely hope this pilot works out well for them and this becomes more mainstream for their other models. :)
