$500.00 Linspire Laptop
Wal-Mart is offering a Laptop preinstalled with Linspire for $500.00
. Everyone seems to be talking about this.
I think it's a good thing for Linux to get this kind of exposure. I didn't realize it, but WalMart also has desktops
loaded with Xandros, Sun Desktop, and Linspire at prices as low as $200.00 (no monitor).
As you'd expect, these machines aren't poster boys of power, WalMart cut corners where it could to get these rock-bottom prices, but I can see them as great for Grandmothers, Kids, or as a second household PC.
I wonder what their sales have been like. I'm also curious how many people came home, turned it on and were upset when they found out that Xandros and Linspire weren't new versions of Windows.
