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.

Im mainly a windows user who dabbles in Linux, and I saw it as Linux trying to be Windows badly, scratch the surface and your deep into Linux.

Why do you think one of the purposeful design goals of Lindows is a bad thing?

It's MEANT to be an easy transition for Windows Users.

That's the whole point.

And please, if you like Mandrake better... Use that.

Nobody is forcing you to use Linspire.
