US retail giant Walmart has expanded the range of PCs running Linux it sells through its online store.

The supermarket chain has begun selling PCs running Sun's version of Linux, called Java Desktop, for about $300.

This is the first time that Sun's version of Linux has been sold on consumer machines though Walmart has sold open source PCs since 2002.

The machines are only available via the Walmart's net store and will not be on the shelves of any of its supermarkets.
