Linspire Starting today, Linspire does not only offer a free OS, but also its CNR Basic service. " 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."

And while I am not a big fan of CNR since apt/synaptic and so forth is just fine with me I do feel that they have a right to have their own package manager. I think it was a 'recreate the wheel' instead of just improving but whats done is done and let us hope in the future they will consider other options. I am sure if we applaud the steps they take they will be inclined to take more.
