LXer: Wal-Mart's $199 (formerly $198) Linux box is here -- and so is the OS that runs

Published at LXer:

Remember the Everex box I wrote about last week? The $198 PC, to be sold by Wal-Mart, is using a new Linux distribution based on Ubuntu, but with the Enlightenment window manager instead of GNOME. If you want to give it a spin now, go to the gOS site. They are encouraging Bittorrent downloads, but there is a full ISO on the ftp site, if you can get through -- it's so busy, I couldn't. One thing I like about gOS it is the tight integration with Google services -- you can see icons on the screen above for such Google mainstays as Blogger, Gmail and YouTube. I also see an icon for Wikipedia.
