My parents have also been running tinycorelinux for years now - and it's great for them cause it never pesters them like windows would. It boots directly into chrome and I told them to shut down they just have to pull the plug. Tinycore is cool for web browsing. :D

Cool..  Here is some more info:  http://www.mywowcomputer.com/opensource.html  Based on the source code it looks like it is based on Tiny Core 3.x

On a quick look it appears like they would host the whole 3.x repo, including all minor version iso's...

did a forum search for "zdnet" and this was one of them...

still kicking butt ten years later(and the article/webpage/url still resolves)!

current pricing on webpage was $1149.00(page claims "save $150.00 - was $1299.00)

...now things make sense!
I had a client about eight months ago with a Wow!  The computer/screen resembles an unbranded HP (Windows XP model of their "All in One" desktops), had an "upgraded" 1GB of RAM and (from my perspective) was slower than dirt in some areas; but simple enough to navigate the basics.  Have they at least donated to the TCL cause? :)

No, zero contact from Wow/Telikin.
