Wow! What a difference a few years make. It was only a few years ago that Walmart sold out of GNU/Linux netbooks and proclaimed buyers returned them… Now Walmart.com lists Linpus GNU/Linux, Chrome OS GNU/Linux, and even Android/Linux notebooks. Some are in the top ten of best-sellers.

Walmart still seems confused by a choice of operating systems. They show Android and Linux but where is Chrome OS???
Buyers don’t seem confused. 68% of viewers of the Exynos 5 Chromebook bought it. Wow! Wintel should worry!
How about this typical review?
I want to rush out and buy one… I think this explains a lot of the “pop” GNU/Linux had in 2013:
