Here's some bad news for those of us who support GNU/Linux: Wal-Mart removes Linux PC from store shelves.

Reminds me of Orwell's Road to Wigan Pier, where the poor people were opting to buy expensive (and less wholesome) canned milk when there was plenty of fresh milk available at a much lower price. A status thing?
