How Many People have already bought Lindows?
How many of you linux fans have bought Lindows already? I know that Wal-Mart is already selling some of there computers with Lindows Pre-loaded on them. If anyone has bought Linux can you tell me what you think of it? I am thinking about do a dual boot with Windows XP and Lindows.
Can I run Windows® software on LindowsOS?
Lindows.com believes the real value savings come to consumers who, using the Click-N-Run Warehouse have access to hundreds of programs. For this reason, much of Lindows.com's time and energies are spent in making the applications in the Click-N-Run Warehouse as robust and useful as possible.
I dunno! I read through a bunch of the faq's and too many of their answers don't really answer the question in any way that could be construed as direct.. Above example sounds too much like a politician or a used car salesperson..." why no son it's not a used car, it's a previously owned vehicle".
Simple answer would have been yes or no or some will and some wont.
Doesn't look like you can run anything but their apps.
Have to wait and hear from others for a true eval.
I would think the point would be to make it Win compatible. I mean, honestly, most people that are going to buy a computer from Wal-Mart are not going to want to spend the time to learn it if it still resembles Linux so much, it is NOT newbie friendly! Also Wal-Mart only sells Windows-PC software (atleast the ones around here), so if they sold Lindows without having supported software - that would be VERY stupid marketing. I would love to hear from someone that's tried it, and if you have it, stress it and let us know how it does. If it's got the stability (and cost:P) of Linux and the compatibility/usability of Windows - it seems that would be the ULTIMATE OS.
