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 watch DVD's under Linux. However, I have to "secretly" install libdvdcss to do it. With Linspire I can do it openly and above board with a licensed DVD player.

I know we are rehashing what is not a simple issue, but it still seems immoral that we have to do something secretly to watch a DVD that we paid full price for. Linspire may be on legal high ground, but not moral high ground.
