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.

I don't see ANY linux distro that gives this much back to the Open Source Community while taking on Microsoft. I have been using Lispire including all it incantations for the last 3 years and it is a rock solid OS with lots of really good software. I hope that this continues. I also wish success to Xandros, Lycros, Suse........ they all have a place and it give us the customer CHOICE, and if this healthy competition kick MS to produce better products then we win all round.
