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."

This is the reason why Linux is not growning like Mac OS and Windows on the desktop! Its seems to me like Linux users are cheap and a bunch of cry babies!

Me I love Linux, but damn Linspire gives away one of their best parts and people are still spreading FUD.

No one says any of this about Xandros or Red Hat or Novell! They all sell their products just like Linspire, they have all done things that have left the Open source community out in the cold at times.

People should try Freespire and/or Linspire out. If you don't like it you don't like it. Move on.

If you like it, make it your default! My mother, grandmother, girlfriend and roommate all use Linspire 5 as their default OS and love it.

Remember Linspire is not for the hard core Linux user, Freespire is getting to be more for the hard core.

Anyway people STOP whining!
