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 did give an example. I said that Linspire is no different then any other paid Linux company like Red Hat even though people paint Linspire as worse.

Also people are still saying that Linspire only runs as root. CNR is not as good as other package managers??

That linspire is going out of business because it's giving the basic CNR away?

All of those things are not true. It's all FUD.

I mean people were whining about $20 a year?? Don't you want the company to make some money and stay around? Its crazy that people wont pay $1.60 a month for a good service. (I am a gold member myself and I don't even use Linspire that much anymore) But my brother and mother do and they like it so I pay for it for them.
