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.

Re: Linspire v. Redmond

Free at last, free at last. Thank ....

Seriously. There is no comparison between the two. BSD and Linux both rock. I use FreeBSD, Slackware, Ubuntu, and Beatrix depending on what I need to do.

I tried Linspire and it was okay. It's a bit too Redmond-y for my tastes. But I wish all Linux companies great success.
