cpubuilder linux

Sam's Club (I think) is marketing boxes with cpubuilder linux. I can find no info other than their web site, no reviews, etc. Anyone have any experience with it? based on red hat?, debian?, slackware??? Sounds like a distro aimed at Windows users ala Lindows/Lycoris with a much more attractive price point.

i looked at them & they are very cheap quality parts (keyboard, mouse,etc.), not worth the money in my opinion. I just got some junk computers & Linux CD's via internet & been experimenting with Linux. I also bought a 56K modem from this company that works very slowly loading pages even tho the box raves about it's features & speed. I ended up installing a different brand modem that is much faster. I wouldn't waste my money on their products.

That's fine on the hardware. I am curious about their brand of Linux.
Particularly their support policies, etc.
