The Memorex Traveldrives also list Linux as a supported operating system
on the box. I bought my 8gb version for that reason at Best Buy, and
told the manager that that's why I selected it. He laughed and said that
one of his computer sales staff is a Linux guy, and that while they were
somewhat locked in on what product lines they sell, they do keep an eye
open for products with Linux support.
I should have my new Asus Eee microlaptop sometime next week from Best
Buy; it's Linux-based. (not in the stores, but you order on the website
and they ship to a store).
