Wal-Mart Ditches Linux PC

Susan Hall

Almost as quickly as it began, Wal-Mart's experiment with selling Linux-based PCs is over, reports the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.


The retail chain began selling Everex's gPC for $199 in November, but though its initial inventory sold out, it has decided not to restock the model. It says the PC was just not what its customers were looking for, according to PCWorld.com.


Wal-Mart will continue to sell the Linux-based PCs online, however, as do other retailers, such as Sears and Best Buy.
