Anyhow, here's the announcement (a little late) for the current issue of PCLinuxOS magazine. Once again, I contributed a Double Take cartoon and Gimp Tip.

OneClickLinux recommends the following Linux computer makers:
LinPC.us LinPC.us systems come with PCLinuxOS 2009.1 completely installed and configured as a working desktop. They also ship a LiveCD to restore your system to a like new state. They've installed current versions of Open Office, Mozilla Firefox and ThunderBird along with K3b, gftp, mplayer, streamtuner, streamripper. A nice setup for getting started with browsing the internet, email, office, playing DVDS, MP3s, etc. Once you have your system up and running, you can easily add any application you need. Just open Synaptic, the software manager and install any of 7000 applications available to every PCLinuxOS user.
Gigastrand International. Gigastrand International will build you a Linux computer with Freespire or Linspire Linux pre-installed. Gigastrand built my desktop computer and it's going on three years of great Linux service! If you do purchase a computer from Gigastrand, refer to my agent number GPA2000.
Kiowa Linux Kiowa is a terrific Linux operating system. I use it on my laptop. The folks at Kiowa have taken the very best of Mandriva, tailored it to their own specs, and made it even easier to use.
