+ - Wal-Mart's $200 Linux PC Sells Out->

Submitted by

hankmt writes "About a week ago Wal-Mart began selling a $200 linux machine running on a 1.5 ghz Via C7 processor and 512 megs of RAM. While the specs are useless for vista, it works blazingly fast on Ubuntu with the Enlightenment Window Manager. The machine is now officially sold out of their online warehouses, and the product sales page at WalMart.com is full of glowing reviews from new and old linux users alike."

It starts with the reader (TR) sitting in a Virgin Galatic ship, going to visit the moon. Having his Apple x86 iTablet patched to run Fedora Core 17 connected via hi-speed WiMax, he can see his own ship launch be ascii/unicode broadcast live through one of his nerdy friends Vlogs, while peeking at some online pr0n stuff and downloading the latest Michael Jackson album from BitTor. In the way to the moon, some nanomechanisms spawn from his computerized clothes designed at the MIT by Negroponte himself take care of his personal hygiene (since he can't do it himself being busy with Wanda and Lara, which are actually 2 truck drivers that impersonate booby girls in the IRCng channels). While playing Katamari-Rollback with his ps3 supercomputer, he blogs his impressions about the trip using a mind control apparatus that fires ultrasonic waves into his brain. With a sup of tutti-frutti Kool-Aid, he reloads Slashdot to read some more dupes and FPs and Trolls.

Journal: No more 2 post per day limit for me?

Journal by Captain Goatse

It seems as I can post more than the old boring 2 comments per day right now, this should be my fourth today, for example. It might be because my previous posts actually got modded up, some nicer trolling actually pays off after a while :) And doing it in the first post too, of course. It also helps a lot to actually know what is being said in the news article.

Journal: Terrible

Journal by Captain Goatse

I finally reached Terrible karma. A rather nice stepping stone into the worlds of Trolling. It's time to write some more exiting Captain Goatse stories. I know you all want to know what I found out about the legend of loopback(Warning: Might be offensive to some non-pirates).

Journal: Banned already

On my ship we have 100% free speech and 100% gay sex. I wish the rest of the world would learn. I've been thinking about releasing some of our brats to let them spread our message. Is is a good idea or not?

Why is this story such a big deal??
How many of you wolf-crying 'tards have ever paid a dime for your MP3 encoders? Fraunhofer has been charging a license fee for them since the very beginning, but I don't ever remember having inserted a quarter into the coin slot on my PC when I ran LAME.
Do you honestly think you're gonna start having to pay for your copy of XMMS? Of mpg123? Do you think the copies you have now are gonna quit working in a few days?
Stop acting like such irrational little 12-year-olds...

(It is flamebait for sure and I think it is Troll because it didn't take very long for Google to find out he was just being stupid.)

You might be right about FortKnox. I have not decided yet.

I took /dev/trash off the list.
