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 is something most critics of Linspire have been whining and complaining about for ages "you have to PAY to use CNR! How LAME!"

Well now it is free and lo and behold... the same people are still out whining and complaining. This IS big news - that's $45 year or so (I forget the actual cost) saved for those who actually pay for Linspire and the CNR for ease-of-use and insurance of compatibility with the OS.

Honestly, no one is ever satisfied around here with ANYTHING positive that happens. God could appear tomorrow, say "All is forgiven, come home to heaven!" and someone would bitch that "well why didn't he do that sooner" or "why isn't there any porn on HTV?"


And I can guess someone will answer me with "well if you don't like to hear other people's opinions don't read the thread" or some such crapola.
