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."

1) Ok, but for me i dont see any advantage of using 64bit over 32bit for normal desktop use.

2) I think they are aiming at improving this with the community helping out now.

3) to be fair most distros dont provide Suspend2 enabled kernels, AppArmor? isnt that SUSE only?, No idea what PAE is and agree about SMP. SELinux - fair enough.

4) They can use YaST itself as its open source

5) The install CD is also a live CD I believe

6) ok

7) Can't comment being an english only user.
