US retailer PC Club is to start flogging LindowsOS PCs throughout its 51-strong chain. This is the largest retail launch of Linux in the US, according to Lindows, which is nice; but it shows just how far Linux has to go before it reaches the mainstream.

According to Michael Robertson, Lindows.com's ebullient CEO, this is a monumental day for Linux since PC Club marks the first major US chain to give consumers a real choice when it comes to buying a computer off the shelf. By offering LindowsOS on a line of computers, PC Club is able to offer a much more affordable product and is blazing a trail for Linux that other retailers will have to catch up to."

We shall see.

Lindows.com estimates that "its" computers in PC Club are $50-$300 than Windows PCs with the same hardware spec. ®
