Buy a Computer from a Linux Icon
Clay Claiborne is a Linux community icon. For those that frequent Linux-centric trade shows and conferences, he's the guy in the tall red brim hat that has the word "LINUX" scrawled around it. He's been a highly respected member of the community as long as the community has existed.

If you're looking for a new Linux desktop or laptop, consider giving Clay a call. It will be worth it for the experience alone. Clay is promoting computers powered by Ubuntu Linux and among a large inventory, he also has the ASUS Eee PC everyone in my office is drooling over.
