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.

Well, since you put it out there... :-)

What's going on with Windows format compatibility? I could do absolutely everything natively in Linux right now if I didn't need CrossOver to integrate with the Windows environment.

I don't use LinSpire, but I have used it, and it really is excellent. It's very true that LinSpire's negative rep is 99% undeserved. If the desktop wasn't quite so thoroughly branded, I'd say 100% :-)
