My reading of the OP was that the *machines* (not Tesco) were being
described as "cheap and nasty" which I thought was fair comment given
their low spec (& price).  Personally I think it's a good thing that
Linux is being sold through Tesco.  All credit to them (and, by the
way, I happen to work for one of their competitors).
