Original OSNews Interviews OSNews "sat down" with Linspire CEO Michael Robertson for a Q&A about his company's efforts as the banner-carrier for Linux-on-the-desktop. We discussed the upcoming Linux Desktop Summit in San Diego and the perceptions and realities of the obstacles to widespread desktop Linux use. Linspire also extended a special offer to OSNews readers: a free download of Linspire and a 30 day CNR subscription, so put yourself in Granny's shoes (not literally, please) and give it a try. Correction: The free offer expires on January 15.

What about NVu?
by Al Hartman on Tue 4th Jan 2005 18:18 UTC

Michael has a LOT to talk about.

A lot of things that Linspire is contributing to the community...

Besides LSongs and LPhoto (currently only available to Linspire users), there is NVu, and his support of PhoneGAIM, and other SIP solutions for Linux.

Linspire has an unearned bad reputation amongst the Linux Elitists...

They just don't like an easy to use Linux Distribution to be available to the masses.
