This picture posted by Aenigma @ Reddit shows a machine at Best Buy that is advertising a Nintendo product powered by a recent distribution of Ubuntu. I do not know what release it is but it looks like 12.04. Hard to tell when you can only see the bootsplash. But this is very interesting indeed. Apparently they were trying to sell boxed copies of Ubuntu in the store; but they did not sell. Hard to sell something that you can download for free, but Windows and Macintosh computers are more popular than Ubuntu Linux machines. Even though Linux has less security holes.
