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."

Then don't use it! Use what work for you or makes you happy! Someone has an Ax to grind it appears. There are many great Linux Distros available, some free some not...but who cares as long as it's not Windows. I just don't get it with guys like you.
