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."

Linspire is a Free Software based, but they get profits by selling commercial softwares, as it says in answer #1.
So, that will not impulse the adoption of free software, because if people do prefer free (libre) software instead of commercial, CNR dies.
What does that mean? They still dont know how to make money with free software, or its not possible to make money with free software?
