Linspire Linspire has started another attempt at selling computers pre-installed with their operating system - this time by teaming up with Mirus - called the Koobox. Ars looks at the situation: "At this point it is hard to assess the potential of the Koobox systems. If it succeeds, the product could help legitimize desktop Linux and bring it further into the mainstream. Regardless of how many get sold, the availability of yet another budget Linux PC illuminates the growing popularity of the Linux platform, and contributes to the perception that Linux is applicable to desktop computing."

sounds like the same announcement for that other MAJOR OEM wintergreen ;) Sheesh they dont even manage to install modems that work of course considering a modem that worked in 4.0 did not in 4.5 and did in 5.0.59 and does not in the latest 5.0.347 is it any surprise...

Can any major OEM keep a Linspire box supported? Wireless cards that work, dont work, work again but cannot use the wireless GUI utility... sheesh...
