Hey, two Wal-Mart stories in a row. No conspiracy here, I promise.
About 600 Wal-Mart stores will carry the $199 Linux-powered "Green gPC" made by Everex of Taiwan, Wal-Mart said. It was available online on Wednesday.
A comparable Everex PC that comes with Windows Vista Home Basic and more memory costs $99 more, or $298, partly because the manufacturer has to pay Microsoft Corp. for a software license. Both computers come with keyboard, mouse, and speakers, but no monitor.
But here's the $199 question: How many of these will sell? Their last Linux venture didn't turn out so well and I don't see this one being any different.
