Linspire Linspire has started another attempt at selling computers pre-installed with their operating system - this time by teaming up with Mirus - called the Koobox. Ars looks at the situation: "At this point it is hard to assess the potential of the Koobox systems. If it succeeds, the product could help legitimize desktop Linux and bring it further into the mainstream. Regardless of how many get sold, the availability of yet another budget Linux PC illuminates the growing popularity of the Linux platform, and contributes to the perception that Linux is applicable to desktop computing."

Wow does that sound cheap? Hell no, i got my AMD 64 compaq presario for 405$ only after mail-in-rebate and it has superior configuration that KooBox. It was also preloaded with XP.

Can someone enlighten why anyone should buy koobox?
