Walmart, the retail giant that has been pushing Lindows PCs like hotcakes, is now offering the LindowsOS desktop operating system for $98.72 on its Web site. The Lindows folks are claiming this is the first operating system that Walmart has offered as a standalone product besides Microsoft Windows. Walmart.com is carrying not only the OS, but also the newly introduced LindowsOS MP3.com computers, according to the Lindows press release.
