At $299 for a well spec'ed machine, this is going to sell bucketloads. Who wants MS Office on a home PC anyway when StarOffice/OpenOffice will do exactly the same for one twentieth of the price? Games? - well there is the Direct X extension to WINE.

Once these machines start selling, the dam has burst, porting Windows applications and games to WINE is easy - if codeweavers can do this for MS Office binaries with nothing but hinderence from Microsoft, think how easy this will be for the app/games writers who have the source code and the incentive.
