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."

Over the last month here in Sweden, Linspire PCs have started to appear at the big retailers such as PCCity and Elgiganten. Those are low price (about $340) Medion computers. They are marketed as "perfect for students".

I guess those might be coming to you in Holland soon too.
