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."

I have done so on several occasions. However, you must remember that Ubuntu, Lindows, and Xandros have created a great influx of new users, who seem bent upon IMMEDIATE gratification "just like in Windows," since that is how at least the Lindows people like to paint things. Be required to LEARN something? Heavens forefend. "It isn't like that in Windows." is a common complaint heard across the forums. This is NOT Windows, this is a *nix clone (GNU's Not Unix) running Linus' kernel. How could it BE Windows?
