Microsoft strikes a distribution deal with Lenovo

All new Lenovo computer systems – including ThinkPads, ThinkCentre
desktops and Lenovo-branded PCs – will have Windows Live software and
the Live.com tool bar pre-installed on their machines. This is a
significant coup for Microsoft as, previously, on many workstations the
Google applications package was the pre-installed software.

Aidan says:

‘Lenovo is the third largest PC producer in the world therefore
this represents a big win for Microsoft over Google in the partnership
stakes. Lenovo’s has a large business customer base and with people
more likely to leave preinstalled software on their work PCs this could
lead to an increase in the use of Microsoft Live.’
