Dismayed Windows user looks to Linux version at Wal-Mart

Would you please tell me what Lindows is? Is it only for techies? Can it run all Windows-based software? I bought Windows XP and then my computer went on the fritz. I would like to install my XP software on a new computer, but guess what, I have to buy a new version of XP! That's what I was told when I called Microsoft! See why I want to switch? Editor's note: This article contains factual errors about Lindows, but it's a typical example of what "popular press" technology columnists tell people about Linux.)
