    AOL To Tell Lindows To Retract its Claims

    AOL Computer? What AOL Computer? AOL denies there is such a thing.

    More's the pity for Lindows.com, which got another 15 minutes of fame this week after cleverly stretching a freebie Netscape license into what it called an "AOL Computer," dazzling a lot of folks with its creation.

    The weird thing is, they got some of that 15 minutes of fame thanks to MSNBC. Too weird for my tastes (can't wait until my Microtel computer comes in so that I can delete Lindows).
