Linspire Intentionally or not, Linspire may be trying to become the "Education Linux" distribution. The desktop Linux software maker, formerly known as Lindows, Thursday launched a new, low-cost licensing program for schools who wish to install a Linux desktop operating system as an alternative to the more expensive Microsoft Windows operating system.

I think any step like this is progress. Yes, it would make more sense if schools just used free version of Linux, and hopefully many will. But unfortunately there is still the notion that the more you pay for software the higher quality it is. At least this will open more eyes to alternatives to Windows and OS X.
