Linux PCs still available at Wal-Mart: Just not the one down the road

Hardware

Recently there were some rumors that Wal-Mart was once more selling Everex PCs with gOS Linux. Well, they got it about a third right.

Yes, Wal-Mart is selling gOS Linux-powered Everex laptops, but then again they never stopped selling them. What they did so was stop selling them at their retail stores. Today, if you want an Everex gOS PC you need to go to the Wal-Mart Web site.

However, Wal-Mart doesn’t make it easy to find their Linux-powered PCs. A simple search for “Linux” won’t do the trick. If you do some digging, or just follow the links below, you can find their Linux systems.

Lenovo G50 & CentOS 7.2 MATE - Fairly solid

Is there a perfect track record for any which distro? No. Do any two desktop environments ever behave the same? No. Is there anything really good and cool about the MATE offering? Yes, definitely. It's not the finest, but it's definitely quite all right. You do get very decent hardware support, adequate battery life and good performance, smartphone and media support is top notch, and your applications will all run happily. On the other hand, you will struggle with Samba and Bluetooth, and there are some odd issues here and there. I think the Gnome and Xfce offerings are better, but MATE is not to be dissed as a useless relic. Far from it, this is definitely an option you ought to consider if you're into less-than-mainstream desktops, and you happen to like CentOS. To sum it all up, another goodie in the growing arsenal of CentOS fun facts. Enjoy. Read more
