Manufacturer of Linux based PCs, System76, has announced that it will be moving its manufacturing from China to the United States according to a report from OpenSource.com . OpenSource interviewed the company's marketing director, Louisa Bisio about the move to the U.S. Carl Richell, founder and CEO of System76 said on Twitter that they anticipate shipping products from the new factory by the end of the year. Great news in my opinion, and fantastic for the new jobs that are coming thanks to the move. Browsing the systems they have on their website, the lineup seems pretty nice, albeit a little expensive to me. Thanks to cageymaru for the story.
