Preinstalled Linux Hard Drives

Seagate to ship drives with Lindows: Kinda handy:

“Hard disc drive manufacturer Seagate Technology is to offer some models of its Barracuda drive family with the English version of the LindowsOS operating system preinstalled. …

The drives cost no more than Seagate’s conventional drives and will mean personal computer makers need not spend time installing the operating system because the drives and software will automatically detect hardware and configure the system for optimal performance without any interaction.”
