" Linspire, Inc., developer of the commercial desktop Linux operating system of the same name and Freespire, the free community desktop Linux operating system, announced the immediate change in pricing for its popular CNR Service from an annual subscription fee based offering to a completely free service." CEO Carmony said: "We're thrilled to now be in a position to offer this excellent service to desktop Linux users absolutely free. CNR really makes using desktop Linux easy, and we want everyone to have access to this quality service."

Actually, i think its just another front end to apt-get... since Linspire is based on Debian... if i remember correctly...

That was something that always bothered me, was how they tried to market CNR as something on Linspire was able of doing... almost as if they invented the easy to install package manager (dpkg)

Oh well...
