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."

For the sake of the whole internet, I hope that the Ubuntu people beat them to it. CNR may be nice but there is no excuse for such blatantly insecure default settings on a desktop-oriented distro, regardless of the targetted user base - in fact, all the more because of the targetted user base, since the average Linspire user probably doesn't know how to secure their system.
