The Wal-Mart PCs have used Linux distributions from Lindows and Lycoris, designed to look and act like Windows and thus be less intimidating to consumers. But David Ginskey, vice president of engineering for CPUBuilders, said the company prefers to stick with Linux leader Red Hat.
"The real reason we like Red Hat...is it's really robust, and there's a lot of depth to it," he said. "It makes our systems more flexible, because you've got the tools for more complex stuff down the road."
Not wanting to revive the old Linux on the desktop argument, but it's nice to see a quality distribution offered through a major retailer. Hopefully this is a sign of great things to come.
