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."

I won't go further into this subject because it makes people upset. First, the difficulty with Libranet was the ambitious version 3.0 and not Jon's unfortunate death. I do not want to use more names, as I respect them. It is just too much to cope. Have you seen Slackware's changelog, incidently? And he is *just* organizing stuff, not creating, testing, debugging, profiling and analysing new code. Even so, the task is enormous.

Then, I did not comment on SourceForge system but rather on large quantities of semi-dead projects. The projects themselves.

As for "gaining" in popularity, that may be the truth, or not. We must see numbers and analyse them.
