Lindows shuts out Washington State

Lindows is helping to make Microsoft's monopoly even
larger by not allowing Washington residents to
purchase it...

Apparently they think all WA residents are M$ freaks (yes, alot are..) although no other distros had any trouble selling their products here...

they should not allow the whole US to buy it..
have you seen the screenshots of it.. might as well be windows 98 or something, even has the My Computer icon on the desktop.
check out for a article about it. has the screenshots there.

true true but I am still looking for a distro to recommend to new users...just scrached lindows off the list. I await the release of Xandros..

I hope that the improvements made to WINE by the lindows team will be added to the CVS..anyone know if it is?
