Canonical and Valusoft bring Ubuntu plus support to Best Buy

If you walk into a BestBuy this week you may spot some new software peeking out from the shelves.  Yes, Ubuntu is now available as a spiffy boxed set in stores and on-line.

We’ve been working with ValuSoft who are a distribution company that specialise in the US retail channel. The boxed set comes with an Ubuntu 8.04 CD, a Quick Start Guide and 60 days of support from the ValuSoft team, trained and backed by the Canonical support guys. The support covers installation and getting started using Ubuntu and is priced at $19.99.

Thats kinda cool

Don't see this as that big of a deal. Maybe for businesses might give them more confidence.
