A number of years back, I read yet another complaint about someone having trouble finding a computer with Linux preinstalled.
So I did something about it: I created LinuxSi.com, where it is possible to register computer stores in Italy (this was an Italian Linux mailing list) that are helpful towards people wishing to buy a Linux machine.
Fast forward past getting married, having kids and buying a house, and LinuxSi.com is not something I have much time to run any more. I still think it's a useful service, even if the site itself is a bit creaky.
In any event, I've put it up for auction with Flippa.com, and there's one week left on the auction. Right now, it's going for just $10, which even with the low amounts of adsense income it brings in, you'd make back pretty quickly.
I hope that it goes to someone who cares about promoting Linux in Italy – if nothing else, the domain name is a good one that could be employed for many things.
