Talking Wal-Mart ships linux PCs!!!!!


Wal-Mart's on-line store has begun offering 8 different models of PC's running the Lindows OS (www.lindows.com)

The computers sell from $299-$599 and run on both AMD and Intel chips ranging up to 1.8Ghz.

Wal-Mart originally made news when it began shipping machines with no OS installed, a practice frowned upon by Microsoft who claims it encourages piracy of Windows, as no one could possibly want to run another OS.

Lindows is a UNIX based operating system optimized for Broadband usage and fast, stable performance. Wal-Mart also offers it's "Wal-Mart Connect" ISP service for a cost of $9.94 a month (USD)

WOOHOO!!!!!
i mean, its lindows, but still!
linux is hitting the mainstread desktop market!!!!!
