Linspire In a move that some may have sensed was coming, Eric S. Raymond - one of the co-founders of the open-source movement - has joined the Freespire Leadership Board. Raymond believes desktop Linux is entering into a critical period, noting that historically, users have shifted operating systems during periods of fundamental changes in hardware platforms. He believes the PC vendors' embrace of 64-bit computing will provide desktop Linux a unique window of opportunity, which if missed, may not come along again for many years.

Why these guys don't get together with a small White Box OEM and sell this on QVC or Home Shopping Network! I am sure they could sell machines with Linspire or Freespire on them if they got one of those slick marketing guys like the one that sells Oxy Clean on TV.

That Oxy Clean guy can sell anything! LOL!

I know Dell sells on QVC and so does tigerdirect. Sirius radio also sells on QVC and HSN.
