F12 great on Wal-Mart special




Wal-Mart just sold a few million of these laptops at $299 a pop (entire in-store inventory nationwide sold in under 24 hours): http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=12456200

AMD CPU, ATI graphics, RealTek wireless & ethernet, SATA/300 hard drive, CD/DVD reader+burner. And all of it works flawlessly on Fedora 12/x86-64, including dual-boot with the installed Windows 7.

Kudos to everyone, especially the wireless and X/graphics hackers. This was a volume platform that IMO Fedora could not afford to screw up, and F12 easily gets high marks.
