    Why is it that Micoshaft Asstroturfers have posted the greatest
    number of anti-Linux drivel this year and yet this year is
    seeing massive growth in Linux.
    A million users a month switching to Linux and the rate is increasing.

    "We have bought a few of these, they work fine, the software is easy
    to use and lack of monitors is not a problem(we have all sorts of old
    crt units laying around). These are great to get folks started
    and break away from the M$ monopoly. I doubt if the folks in Redmond
    are going to lose much sleep over this, but it is a good start! ;-)

    "Walmart should probably more clearly label this computer as not
    having Windows, but many buyers seem pleased with their purchase

    Yep. Them linux PCs sure are selling like "hot cakes" - too bad they're not
    selling like iPods or something that people actually want and buy.

    But instead they are selling just like "hot cakes" and I don't know or have
    ever heard of a single person that has actually bought a "hot cake." Just
    like linux.
