Ubuntu Spotted at Best Buy, But Not as Something for Sale Though

Ubuntu was spotted at a Best Buy Store, Loveland, CO on a display powering a promotional video/slideshow for Nintendo.

Aenigma @ Reddit spotted this and quickly posted a picture

One of the readers was quite surprised by this and responded:

And to think, they kicked me out of Bestbuy for wanting Ubuntu on a netbook. This was around...2008? I went in to one of the Bestbuy's at Tigard, Oregon. Asked for my Windows Refund, or just to get a laptop with Ubuntu the "lemme ask my manager" response, 30 minutes later the manager "banned" me from the store.

I know a year or two back there was some news about Best Buy selling Ubuntu powered systems. Not sure if it still does.
