Linspire "Linspire announced plans to standardize software installation across Linux distributions by expanding its popular CNR digital download and software management service to support several of the most popular desktop Linux distributions in 2007. Previously available only for Linspire and Freespire desktop Linux users, the CNR Service will begin providing users of other desktop Linux distributions a free and easy way to access over 20000 desktop Linux products, packages and libraries."

if there was a standard unified linux platform, there would be no need and no room for these closed source gimmicks.

The Linux foundation will just be a collection of competing groups that will never really change the situation and do what needs to be done to make linux competitive against Windows.

they have to think: what will it take to get more developers to come to the platform?
