Looking for an OS-less new computer to try Linux?

You could go to Walmart of all places...

From here... [news.com.com]
"We decided to sell the computers without an operating system so those customers who didn't want Windows could load the OS of their choice," said Lin, adding that another attractive element in not offering an operation system is that eliminating Windows considerably drops the cost of PCs.

Very cool, and I am surprised that a place like Wallmart would make such a move.

Anyway, there prices look pretty darn good [walmart.com] when you are not forced to buy XP with the mix.
