Cheap PCs with Lindows are well intentioned but flawed
The Washington Post writes: "Wal-Mart, the most mass-market retailer imaginable, is committing an outrageous form of computing heresy: On its Web site, it's selling Windows-compatible personal computers without Windows... To make this break with industry tradition, Wal-Mart didn't work with experienced Linux distributors such as Red Hat. It went with Lindows.com, a San Diego start-up headed by MP3.com founder Michael Robertson... If only the Lindows PC I tested lived up to its advance publicity."
