You can get it pretty cheap at Tiger Direct, but I agree about not wanting to buy it to try it out. I was actually looking at some cheap PCs that come with it installed, so I might end up getting a copy anyways. I also found it on iMesh but I couldnt connect to anyof the users that had it.

Yep, that is the one I was thinking about getting. I need to buy a couple of cheap computers for my new store and found those. And even if I don't like or can't use Lindows in the store I can always just install XP or something.

interesting. i just went to TigerDirect and saw this about the $170 computer:

AMD® Duron™ 1.1GHz Processor Learn More
256MB PC2100 DDR Memory Learn More
No Hard Drive Needed!*
56x CD-ROM Drive
10/100Mbps NIC
1.44MB Floppy Drive
56K Modem
Onboard Premium Audio
Premium Integrated Video
Mouse And Keyboard

New! Based on LindowsCD
—running the Lindows CD 4.0 Operating System

Monitor Sold Separately


It says it runs from the CD-ROM. So what do you do when you want to save something? Burn it?

Well, Basically that is just a web box, good for just surfing and what not. All you really need to do is buy a HDD, slap it in their and you're ready to save stuff . Not a bad deal if you just need a second PC. I was looking at them because in the store I am opening up, I don't need naything out of the computers except to be able to surf the web.

Besides the obvious, do you know anything about the OS itself? I know what it costs and I know that I can get it for free if need be. I do not know how it runs or what other programs, hardware or drivers it will support. That is the type of info I am looking for.

Why in the hell would you want a linux system running windows applications? That defeats the whole purpose of having a secure and stable system thats worth a shit. Just install windows on it, you'd be happier, and it would save me the drama from answering retard linux questions that you are sure to end up asking.
