Linspire "Chances are that you think Linspire lets you run Windows applications, that you have to run it as root, and that it's really not quite a proper Linux. Wrong, wrong, and wrong. At LinuxWorld in Boston this week, CEO Kevin Carmony explained what Linspire Linux is, and isn't, all about."

Linspire doesn't give back to the community? What about NVU? I do believe Linspire is the main sponsor for that app, one that I personally use all the time.

Yea, no kidding. They give an app, they sell others, that's fine with me! Maybe I'll think it's not enough when they're a multi-billion dollar corp, but right now they're not even profitable!
I'd be honored to have people pay to run my software gotten through CNR :-p.

You wouldn't believe how many people buy things that are basically repackaged versions of free software, I was amazed at how many people buy IM programs based off miranda and gaim and such.
