I had to opportunity yesterday to have a look at the Cambridge MicroCenter software selection. Of course I wasn’t expecting much, if anything. What I found was amusing and confusing at the same time.
Of course they had four full isles of software products and from what I could tell a lot of them were quite old. One side of one of the shelf actually advertised that it contained “Linux” and I went to have a look at what they had.
1x Box of TuxRacer for windows and Linux, unknown age, looked pretty old.
2x Box of Develop with Linux, publish date about 2001.
That’s it, no boxes of Ubuntu, SuSE, RedHat, Madriva or anything else. No other Linux software (although that concept is a little out of date so I wasn’t expecting much). It was kinda sad, like seeing a software graveyard where old software refused to die.
What have you seen at your local computer shop?
