Profiting off the free works of others... definitely sounds like it.

Oh well
If this promotes the use of Linux, then that's good (Although ripping people off isn't)

But you do realize that Ubuntu is..... free.... right..

EDIT: Don't worry though, guys. If you want, the Douche Squad will install it for you for the low low price of $150.00

Anyone buying linux sure as hell better know how to install an OS, otherwise there's gonna be terror on the command prompt.

Seriously, you guys are taking this way out of proportion. Bestbuy is only making roughly 8 dollars off of this. Who ever made ubuntu and is producing the Disc is making money. They are paying the manufacturers. So why are all you people up in arms about them selling it? Newegg sells processor at a higher price then what intel gives it to them for, so I don't see why you guys are getting your panties in a bunch. BestBuy is paying for the Discs. That whole 20 bucks does not go into their pocket.

And if you buy the CD thats you lose for being stupid and not getting the free version since almost everyone who has heard of linux has heard it's free. Unless your in a special case where you can't download it, it's your fault for buying it. Bestbuy is a company and they are out to make money, as long as the right people are getting paid why should you care if they sell it?

And it's 129.99 also they wont do since bestbuy does not support the linux OS.
