Walmart Sells SuSE

Wal-Mart Adds SuSE-Based PCs As Linux Offerings Grow: They’ve sold Lindows machines for a while now, but this is good news for the Linux camp.

“ has added the SuSE distribution to its PC lineup, and PC consumers can now purchase the Linux-based machines for under $300. The Microtel-designed systems will run SuSE’s 8.2 operating system and are the first to be sold with the SuSE Linux software pre-installed in the United States.”

Getting this in stores would be a huge step. There’s no replacement for sitting someone down in front of Gnome or KDE.
