Today, Walmart sent me an e-mail. It contained all kinds of links to wonderful stuff for Father’s Day. I am sad to report there is still very little choice of OS on their site… Of the hundreds of notebook computers offered, “7”, “8”, and XP were all over and there were just a few Chromebooks. No GNU/Linux at all. This is insane considering that they sell dozens of tablets running Android/Linux.
I sent them a hundred words expressing my disgust. I asked them why they don’t offer what their customers want. I shop a lot at Walmart but have never bought a PC from them. The lack of availability of GNU/Linux is the major cause of that. That’s their choice. They blew it.
