Submission + - Low-Cost Linux Computers Now on ( 1

christian.einfeldt writes: "In the wake of reports that low-end GNU Linux computers and devices sold very well on in 2007, now comes an announcement from Linspire that its community distro, Freespire, will come pre-installed on a desktop box offered on for under $200.00 USD. Built by long-time Linspire partner Mirus Innovations, the box will ship with a Celeron D 420-1.6Ghz chip, one 1 gigabyte of RAM, and an 80 gigabyte hard drive. With Wal-Mart selling out its low-end Linux offering in weeks, this new offering by the risk-adverse venerable old Sears lends some objective credence to opinions by industry observers who see a trend of Linux occupying the low-end PC market. While the Mirus desktop is at the other end of the spectrum from the high-end MacBook Air, also announced this week, it is nonetheless interesting to compare the power of these two very different products, while contrasting the six to one price differential of the two products."
