Wal-Mart’s $200 PC – Sold Out

Posted by: Joey | November 13, 2007 Comments Off |

Wal-Mart’s $200 PC – sold out by ZDNet‘s Adrian Kingsley-Hughes — About two weeks ago, Wal-Mart began selling $200 Linux-based PC. The initial run was around 10,000 units. Now Wal-Mart is sold out. Has Linux now found a niche?

If Wal-Mart’s recently released $200 PC sounds like a potentially great deal but you’re not sure about ditching your current operating system for the inexpensive, Linux-based Ubuntu box, head over to the developer’s web site and download the bootable gOS LiveCD (or rather DVD, at 728MB). The gOS operating system sports an emphasis on web applications, with desktop shortcuts to tons of Google Apps, Facebook, Wikipedia, and other webapps built directly into the desktop.
