Oracle and SUN In what seems like a battle of ants in a case full of lions, Practical Technology has learned that Xandros has bought Linspire. "In an announcement that was sent out today, June 30, to Linspire stockholders, CEO Larry Kettler wrote that the stockholders had decided to sell all of Linspire's assets. This deal specifically includes Linspire, Freespire, and the company's distribution agnostic CNR (Click 'N Run) desktop installation platform." Not everyone is very happy with this one, though.

Same here, just I did install eee Ubuntu, it removes any kernel update, so I skip them and do not have to update the driver. Let's hope Ubuntu just starts shipping the kernel officialy and this problem will be gone.

Also, in 10 minutes I had 4 crashes in Xandros programs, most when trying to browse the windows network, when running in Ubuntu, it works fine.
