Best Buy Sells Linux
Add another once Windows-only PC distributor to the Linux hit list. Thanks to the new Asus Eee Laptop, Best Buy, the Richfield, Minnesota based corporation, is selling Linux on their website (you can check out the web page here). In 2007, Asus sold over 300,000 copies of the Linux laptop, and they're predicting that they will sell several million more this year. The lightweight laptop featuring a solid state drive has become a darling of the subnotebook market; with a 7-inch display, 512 mb of memory and the Linux Xandros operating system, the Eee is popping up everywhere. Best Buy is selling three versions of the Asus Eee laptop: the pink, the white, and the galaxy black models.
