Linspire Starting today, Linspire does not only offer a free OS, but also its CNR Basic service. " Linspire, Inc., developer of the commercial desktop Linux operating system of the same name and Freespire, the free community desktop Linux operating system, announced the immediate change in pricing for its popular CNR Service from an annual subscription fee based offering to a completely free service." CEO Carmony said: "We're thrilled to now be in a position to offer this excellent service to desktop Linux users absolutely free. CNR really makes using desktop Linux easy, and we want everyone to have access to this quality service."

I can't really see the problem either. In my opinion, anything that makes Linux easier to use and gets it more out front so people are more aware of this great OS is a plus to me.

Personally, I think it's the hardcore group who are scared of changes that make Linux more "user friendly" that are bashing these new directions Linux as an OS is taking.
