It seems Wal-Mart, Asda's Stateside daddy, has dropped the Linux PCs it was selling due to lack of interest.

Last October the chain started selling $199 Everex "Green gPCs" bearing Linux, but Associated Press quotes a spokesperson as saying: "This really wasn't what our customers were looking for." Wal-Mart will continue to stock them online though.

Wonder what the problem was - marketing, I imagine, although perhaps I'm just being utopian in my outlook...
