Government-backed Malaysian company sells Linux PCs

"Launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad on Wednesday in Kuala Lumpur, the computer is priced at RM1,899 and aimed primarily at low-to-mid-income home users in support of the countryâs vision of becoming a knowledge-based society," says the story at thestar.com.my. " 'This is the first initiative in Asia, if not the world, in which a full Linux-based desktop solution and Internet-ready computer is offered on a mass deployment model at an affordable price,' DH Info Tech chairman Datuk Yatina Yahaya said in a statement."
