    New Linux computer store opening in Chattanooga, TN

    Hello, everyone!

    The people in Northwest Georgia will be more directly impacted by this news, but as of October 15, 2009, Radiated Computers, a Linux-friendly computer store advocating free and open source software, is open. A friend and I have started this store in response to seeing terribly overpriced computers become the norm. If you're in the area, come and see us!

    This is an awesome idea! I wonder why more people haven't thought of that yet! I'd like to start a Linux store of my own down here in Idaho.

    Do you have an official site yet? I'm really interested in this idea!

    It's not new, there's one in Savannah, Ga called The Open Store

    The thing is, I didn't know that kinda thing existed till I met the owner at Atlanta Linux Fest not long ago.

    The Open Store is closed. I am willing to give a hand on any other linux store. I was naive to open a linux only store in a town of like 10 users. I wanted to help out when i was in TN a couple of weeks ago, but was sick as a dog. (ok I was half dead, if you were at phreaknic you saw me).

    To the person that wants a store in idaho. There are millions of people that would appreciate the store, BUT unless they are willing to come to you and spend money, its hard to do, unless there is a need for it. Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, etc. Any large city, where there are lots of people, is where to open this style of store. Small towns (like Savannah) are hard to do, because you have people who don't like change, or not willing to learn.
