Where are the non-technical people who buy these machines going to get them fixed? Wal-Mart doesn't have a service center in their stores. You can't really take this thing to a local repair shop because they won't know Linux. It just seems like combining Lindows with Wal-Mart customers is just going to cause confusion and headaches.
They have to be very sure that the people know they can only run certain Windows apps with their computer. You don't want people buying other software at Wal-Mart, or anywhere else, and just bringing it back because they thought all windows software would run.
