$199 Linux Machines

Start-up launches low-cost Linux PCs | CNET News.com: With the advanced programming capabilities of Mozilla (check out XUL), I’d love to see a company unleash a couple hundred of these machines as thin clients.

“The 30-person company, Linare, on Monday began selling systems for $199 with its own version of Linux, company Chief Executive Soma Sundaram said. Linare, founded in 2000 and formerly known as Aureex, integrates computers and software.”

Their other product is their own Linux distribution for $19.95. I’d be tempted to get this as a second PC.
