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."

"CNR is an awesome application, and many other Linux distributions are just so insanely jealous that they don't have it. "

Oh yea..... yea.... you have made my day! All you people who have created synaptic, gnome, kde, those who manage openoffice.org, dia, beagle, and othr great stuff - bow down to the almight CNR.

Dude if we wanted a open source CNR then we would have one. No one WANTS it! No one is jealous! We have synaptic and other clicky software installers AND we actually get to have our software instead of a subscription....

Keep paying, paying, paying cause I think you will find nobody else will keep doing it. I will have to commend MR since his hatred for MS gave him enough motivation to outdo bill. I mean I can still install win98 and all the apps I have for it. Can you do the same for 4.0? Nope...
