Mark Pearson

Technical lead for the Lenovo PC Linux team

I've been a Linux user for many years and two years ago joined the Lenovo PC team to help drive the program to deliver Linux on a number of our platforms and improve the Linux experience. It's been a crazy ride!

Accepted Talks:

Lenovo + Debian - 2021

Update on Lenovo’s PC Linux program.

I’m happy to take any questions about the current progress of the Lenovo Linux program - the good, bad and ugly. I’ll give an update of progress since last year and some insight on the pieces that we’ve not managed yet. I’ll cover some of the things we’ve done with Debian to improve the Debian experience on our HW.

Any questions in advance highly appreciated - send an email to with DebConf21 in the title and I’ll do my best to make sure those get covered.

Any suggestions or recommendations as to how Lenovo improves the Debian experience on our platforms also very welcome. I’ll do my best to make the talk as interactive as possible - I’d like to hear from people in the Debian community.
