Did I become an Ubuntu fanboy? not quite, I have not been able to really break it in yet with my busy schedule. However it does excite me that they are going to be selling a $200 PC with Ubuntu on it at Walmart.
Why do I care? Because it shows that free software is moving forward and possibly into more and more regular homes.
I have a couple of friends that are in the market for a PC that will do just the basic tasks, no games, no heavy applications and this would be the perfect solution for them. The company Everex behind it is going to be limiting production so they can provide the best support possible for the machines, which I think is awesome.
