Here  in the UK you can get an eSys computer with Linux for under GBP  150
(approximately  $250  including VAT). The are several vendors that  import
eSys  hardware, which apparently comes from India. I am not sure if  hard-
ware is from Singapore, but it's somewhere in Asia.

The  cost of a Windows licence alone is about 50% of the price of the  ma-
chine.  Although  eSys systems can also be sold with Windows,  the  offers
clearly  show the advantage of sticking with Linux, price-wise, let  alone
functionality-wise (which to many prospective buyers is still an unknown.
