Linspire Kevin Carmony, CEO of Linspire, writes: "With the recent news of several Linux vendors entering into partnership agreements with Microsoft (Novell, Linspire, Xandros), there has been much debate recently about two factions of Linux forming. Saying that Linux is going to be torn in two, makes for good press and lively debates, but this is certainly nothing new for Linux."

I + you up one.

Everything you say I agree with and is true.Put it the way you did sounded like some of Microsoft's own tactics.Feature hypes, then the tactic of acquisition and re-branding.

With Linspire's promises one would have assumed that theirs would been a very logical option even if not choice for the pundits at Dell's ideastorm.Didn't and the koobox they seem to be on doesn't have alot of mindshare as far as I can tell.
