Wal-Mart To Sell $399 Ubuntu Linux-based Laptop with Google Operating System
It includes Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar, Google News, Google Maps, YouTube, Firefox, Skype, Facebook and OpenOffice 2.3

Everex, whose $199 gOS-based gPC desktop sold out at Wal-Mart in record time late last year, has now introduced a gOS-based 2lb ultra-mobile laptop that it plans to sell at Wal-Mart for $399 starting January 25.

Dubbed the CloudBook, the thing uses a 1.2GHz VIA C7 processor and promises an average five-hours operation off a lithium-ion battery. It's equipped with a 7-inch TFT display (800 x 480 native resolution), 30GB internal storage, 512MB memory, digital video output, a 4-in-1 card reader and a 1.3MP webcam.

The Ubuntu Linux-based gOS operating system from Good OS LLC (www.thinkgos.com) includes so many Google applications like Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar, Google News Google Maps and YouTube that it's often referred to as the Google operating system. It also includes Firefox, Skype, Facebook and OpenOffice 2.3.

For those wondering that's a system76 computer in the picture.

This article demonstrates the mass problem of computer illiteracy in the world.

I'm blacklisting this site.

man, this article is poorly written by someone who doesnt know shit about shit. heres the re-write: walmart sells cheap laptop with ubuntu linux.

Wrong picture.

"It also includes Firefox, Skype, Facebook and OpenOffice 2.3."

Facebook isn't an application. It's a website. A website can't come "included" with a computer. Likewise with YouTube.

What other operating system is nicknamed by a handful of applications being run on it. I have never heard of "the Google Operating System". The Google community is certainly not depending on Linux deployment to make them famous. The Linux community has certainly heard of Ubuntu. Your assersion doesn't float.

The article stated that "gOS operating system from Good OS LLC (www.thinkgos.com) includes so many Google applications like Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar, Google News Google Maps and YouTube that it's often referred to as the Google operating system."

GOS is not google OS. It has no direct connection with Google. Please correct that. It is a linux distribution based on ubuntu. It is made by Good OS LLC.

Microsoft Fracturing the Open-Source Community?
Mark Shuttleswrath, iconic Linux cult leader and famous space cadet claims that:
"Microsoft has succeeded in fracturing the Linux and open-source community with the patent indemnity agreements it has entered into with several prominent vendors ... blah blah blah"
Correction "Mr. Spock", in order to fracture something, dosen't it have to have some type of unity in the first place? You guys are "Open Source", that means that anything goes! The only thing that you guys have in common is that your stuff is cheap, ugly and consistently confusing.
Be glad that we show any interest in any of this stuff, you see when you guys sign "contracts" with us it stops us from suing you into oblivion over the 235 unspecified patent violations in Linux. Convince your little buddies to sign up now, my patience is running out.
