Pricing begins at $1,000.00, with one of the many GNU/Linux distributions pre-installed and optimized with the latest stable kernel and X server. KA 4U and 6U rack mountable versions start at $1,250 and $1,675.00 with a wide array of hardware options all optimized for Linux. IndyBox Systems Chief Executive Charles Martin said "with the recent demand for AMD Athlon based KA Series we have experience since announcing the world's first GNU/Linux AMD Athlon system two weeks ago purchases have dramatically increased over similarly priced Intel processor based Linux systems." Martin added, "we remain focused in providing the lowest cost of ownership for GNU/Linux systems. Its been very difficult for many of our customers to ignore the world's fastest x86 processor when entertaining current purchasing needs."
