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.

Questions to MR

How many of the cheap Wal-Mart pcs keep the Linspire installation and how many get overwritten by other OSs? You (presumably) know how many are sold and how many people use CNR, so the answer should be estimatable.

What kind of people use Linspire? It has been hailed as the "granny distro", but what is the reality?

What is the most common question/questions that your support people have to answer?

Novell is moving to 100% free desktop, which you already have done? Has there been any cooperation with them?
