[ale] Micro Center Rocks



Note on Microcenter: They specialize in the desktop, home user, hobyist
equipment. All decent gear and decent prices. Don't bother looking for  a
dual or quad proc board :-) Those are server-class and they don't deal with
that stuff.

Their staff is knowledgeable and helpful without being pushy. Many staff
tinker with Linux at home. They are plnety OK witl booting laptops from a
live CD to test it out under Linux.

They may be willing to add a sticker to a laptop sign telling what Linux
distro and version it works perfect under. (hint!)

Every time I've bought a system from them for office desktop, one of the
managers comes out and thanks me personally.
