The $139 Linux PC

In recent comments to my review of Vector Linux 5.8 SOHO keyfitter wrote: "There is a reason why they are using Win 98 in 2007. I think it’s called, being cheap!." I wonder if these people realize they can buy a brand new computer for $139.

Granted the hardware is a bit dated by today’s standards but it’s probably light years ahead of what they are running Windows ‘98 on. Of course these computers come preloaded with Linux: Vector Linux 5.8 Standard to be precise. That’s fine. Without having to worry about installation or hardware compatibility someone who buys this system gets a nice, ready to go, user friendly Linux system with a warranty.

Yes, and IE 5.5 is more secure especially on Windows 98 with an old Google toolbar for added security.

Hey, you seem like a smart person could I interest you in some fine ocean front real estate on Phoenix. It's dirt cheap on $500 an Acre. A smart person like you I'm sure would know how good of deal that is.
