Short Take: The Linux Store lowers prices

The Linux Store lowered prices on its Linux boxes again, now offering its Linux-based Personal Internet Appliance for $199, not including monitor. The machine comes with an AMD chip, 2.1GB hard disk, and 32MB of memory. The company is in negotiations to have the box bundled with Internet service provider subscriptions at $19.95 per month, the company said.
