Linspire "Linspire CEO Kevin Carmony says his company is opening up its CNR software download and management service to other Linux distributions because "Linux really needs an easier way to find and install software, regardless of which flavor of Linux you're using." According to Carmony, Linspire has been working on this project more more than a year. To find out more about how this bold new program is going to work - and how it benefits everyone involved - Desktoplinux.com conducted the following short Q&A with Carmony via email."

My Opinion? Absolutely. This is a major leap ahead for Linux and the community should be very proud and glad. It removes one of the biggest obsticles between Linux and the desktop. The best thing about CNR is that it has a commercial backing and that is a big plus.

I am not sure however which is a better solution: Klik or CNR? There is also Autopacakage which doesn't seem to be too popular.
