Wal-Mart Selling a $498 Linux Laptop??

excerpt follows...

Linspire has been working for months on a project that will have a profound impact on consumers and on the Linux market - a sub-$500 laptop from a major retailer. This week, we're proud to announce a new complete laptop available immediately for $498, exclusively from There are no mail-order rebates, no refurbished equipment, no "only three available at this price," no gimmicks or asterisks whatsoever and you are not required to buy a printer or sign up for an ISP -- it's just a low price from an established retailer carrying a laptop pre-installed with Linux. This marks a milestone for desktop Linux as it moves into the portable market.

(ok now granted it's an el cheapo craptastic laptop, but's a linux laptop at WalMart. I wonder if this has anything to do with that Red Sox thing...?)
