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.

And thank you to OSNews for offering up the interview.

As you can see from the Interview, Michael answered the questions that OSNews asked. I'm sure he'd be happy to do a follow-up and answer any additional questions you might find interesting (about Lsongs, Lphoto, Nvu, Music Store, Linspire Five-0, etc.), and of course, a lot of the future of Desktop Linux will certainly be shown at the upcoming summit (

Feel free to post questions here, and perhaps we can convince OSNews to run a follow-up.

Thanks for the input.
