Linux Opens Canadian Office to Locally Serve Software Needs

SAN DIEGO, Nov 20, 2003 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Lindows.com Inc. announced today the beginning of a 30,000 LindowsOS PC launch geared to equip Canadians with affordable and easy-to-use computing solutions.

Successful trials of LindowsOS WebStations ( www.lindows.com/webstation ), the powerful, affordable machines designed for web work, are currently underway in Canada. The province of Nova Scotia has already deployed LindowsOS WebStations in four Nova Scotia Regional Community Access Program (C@P) centers. These centers operate as a public service, allowing residents of various communities to access the Internet and use the computers for their own needs.

Lindows.com, in conjunction with the South West Shore Development Authority (SWSDA), is moving throughout Nova Scotia and other provinces to bring LindowsOS to the greater Canada area. It is expected that more than 30,000 LindowsOS machines will be deployed within one year of the initial deployments. LindowsOS WebStations ( www.lindows.com/webstation ) and other configurations of LindowsOS computers ( www.lindows.com/featured ) will fulfill the needs of the Canadian government, as well as businesses and homes in Canada.

Personally, I think Lindows is one step below Windows, but at least this a move in the right direction.
