What result would you expect to see on a linspire forum, and users receiving the linspire letter? I am pretty sure if I stick a poll on a can of coke about which soda is best then I will get a obvious answer. Nice try though.

The Linspire Letter goes to nearly a half million readers, many who are not Linspire users. If your theory were correct, then ALL the Linspire Letters would have such ratings, but as you can clearly see, they go as low as 42.9% agreement. It's pretty clear the reader base for the Linspire Letter has no problem voicing their disagreement with something we write, but on this point, they clearly feel we're on the right track. Funny how most people tend to agree with the idea of having more freedom.

I don't like anyone telling me what I can or can't have on my computer...Microsoft OR anyone else. It should be my choice, and on your computer, it should be yours.
