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

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 is full of glowing reviews from new and old linux users alike."

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.
