Just last April, German supermarket chain Real announced that it would no longer be offering computers that run on Linux. Apparently, sales of the Linspire Linux PCs offered in a special test campaign in the company's eastern sales territory in March did not meet expectations. But now, the company is not only ready to give it a second go, but also across all of Germany. From September 25-30, Real will be offering a multimedia PC with a Celeron processor, which the supermarket chain has not specified any further, for just under 200 euros.
