I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, and I certainly don't want to get Matt mad at me. But how is this news? Last time I was at Fry's they had FreeBSD, NetBSD, AND OpenBSD. I don't recall any OSNews announcement when they started to be carried (though Fry's has probably carried FreeBSD since before OSNews was a gleam in its daddy's eye).
