Walmart PC is a very good deal.

Walmart PC is a very good deal. I have just tried the live CD of gOS and subsequently installed it. I was very impressed. I have experience with helping older people use computers - I set up and was coordinator for three years, of an internet cafe for a UK charity serving older people. I am quite sure that gOS will be strongly favoured by users who want good but basic computing. The underlying ubuntu is well concealed. If a typical user can break something they will deserve a medal!
