Hewlett-Packard (HP) clocked up a record $2.5bn revenue from Linux products and services last year.
The company expects continued Linux sales growth this year, based on a broadening of its Linux services portfolio, such as Linux on notebooks and desktops.
HP vice president of Linux Martin Fink said: "Linux business grew at 40 per cent, we became the first major Linux vendor to initiate a Linux indemnity programme for customers, [and] we are working with many new enterprise customers."
HP also announced updates to its Linux notebooks and desktops, including the HP Compaq t5300 and t5500 diskless workstations, which are designed for use with the Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP).
HP said it has collaborated with the LTSP team and DisklessWorkstations.com to market thin clients.
In addition, HP has certified several models from its business notebook line on SuSE Linux Desktop. These include the HP Compaq nc6000, nc8000 and nw8000.
The company has also certified its HP Compaq business desktop D530 and D330 PCs with SuSE Enterprise Linux.
