LindowsOS Gets a Worldwide Boost

LindowsOS Gets a Worldwide Boost

LindowsOS wil henceforth come pre-installed on 5 different desktops and 3 notebooks - ranging from entry- level to performance level - manufactured by ProSource PC, according to an announcement just made by Roger Fuhrman, Linux Group Leader at ProSource PC, and Larry Kettler, VP of Sales at Lindows.com.

"This partnership signals the changing landscape of the computer market," Kettler remarks.

"LindowsOS is helping to bring choice into a market that has been monopolistic even at the reseller level," he adds. "Consumers can expect to see overall price points drop over the next few years without any compromise in quality."

"ProSource PC is always listening to the demands of the market," says Roger Fuhrman, Linux Group Leader at ProSource PC. "The traditional practice of marking up for licensing fees isn't beneficial to resellers or consumers, who want value. Partnering with Lindows.com is a step toward paving the way for others who also recognize that the way this business operates is changing."

For those not familiar with ProSource PC's dynamism, Fuhrman reminds LinuxWorld readers that its target "click-to-ship" time is 48 hours, "and delivery is often within 72 hours," he adds. (ProSource supplies resellers exclusively, not individuals.)
