Walmart gets a couple of points in my book

I've always been down on Walmart for various reasons including running out small businesses, questionable union breaking, and substandard wages and benefits for their employees. A couple of stances recently put them a couple of notches higher in my book though. Their support of a Linux based desktop(see post on gOS) and their support for anti-DRM music. Granted these are just stances and it doesn't change how they do business...but it is good to see them moving in a direction of support for the "open" movement of knowledge and technology.
