Google (GOOG) Driven Linux PCs Killed At Wal-Mart (WMT)
Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) launched a PC product loaded with its software and an operating system from open source Linux. The product was being sold in Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT).
Unfortunately, Wal-Mart customer seem to like Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Windows or Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) Leopard OS. Wal-Mart has booted out the Google product.
TechCrunch quotes a Wal-Mart spokesman as saying “This really wasn’t what our customers were looking for.”
