The last of the Walmart Linux loaded LUMPS, goes on the chopping block.

This was predicted by the Windows users.

Walmart never sold Linux lumps. It does sell Linux based desktop
computers.


Since Walmart never sold Linux loaded LUMPS, there can not be last Linux
loaded LUMPS.

Which Moshe obviously considers lumpy. (Of note: LUMP =
Limited Use Military Person, as one possibility. This is
apparently well-known to those in the armed forces.)


No, but there can be last Linux loaded machines, which is
apparently what WalMart is trying to sell. That they
still have some to sell is a bit troubling; one would
have thought their inventory thereof exhausted by now.

Then again, I don't know the details of their contract
with the supplier. That they're not going to renew the
offer apparently is more troubling; either Microsoft put
the kibosh on their selling more Linux preloads, or there
just isn't any demand for a cheap, virus-free,
not-quite-compatible-with-Windows-based-software machine.

Linux. Because Windows' Blue Screen Of Death is just
way too frightening to novice users.

So, Windows users predicted that older models of Linux based machines, if
not sold out, would go on clearance, to be replaced by newer models?
