  • Linux machine hits Walmart.

    'The gPC is built using tiny components, but put inside a full-size case because research indicates that Wal-Mart shoppers are so unsophisticated they equate physical size with capability.'

    A new Linux machine was shipped to Walmart for $200. Here is the page http://blog.wired.com/gadgets/2007/1...erex-gree.html .

    From what I read, it is very basic and it works well as a basic work and office pc.



    Question guys, what is the Linux OS and why does it look so much like Mac X and Vista combined?



    Interested in listening to guitar playing and a good conversation, look for me on TS.

    It's a free operating system that's good for just about anything except gaming. It looks like Mac X and Vista because that's what it reminds you of. There are many different desktop environments for Linux so it's not surprising that one of them will look like another OS. Some are pretty and others are minimalist. The point of Linux is that you can pick and choose.

    - It's who you game with.
