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."

We may wish for that (the small and brave against the big and evil) but the reality is not so romantic. Did you ever read a recent paper about data structures? Now, have you compared that with what is coded (FSF has links to a couple of dedicated libraries) by our friends the Open Source believers?
Now compare.

There is NO space for the small and innocent.

Dude can you share whatever it is you are smoking....

What product are we copying? How many of those thousands(?) of PHDs are coding?

Why is it given for free - uh it is SHARED that is why.

If this is so sad and suicidal then why werent we crying and dead two years ago? three years ago? five years ago?

How long does linux have to be around before it will become non-suicicdal and non-sad to you?
