Linspire Kevin Carmony, CEO of Linspire, writes: "With the recent news of several Linux vendors entering into partnership agreements with Microsoft (Novell, Linspire, Xandros), there has been much debate recently about two factions of Linux forming. Saying that Linux is going to be torn in two, makes for good press and lively debates, but this is certainly nothing new for Linux."

...Mr Carmony doesn't comment personally on OSNews anymore? It must be difficult to interact with the majority of a community that now despises you huh?

All we hear from him and others at Winspire these days are press releases... and brief Q&A's that sound like press releases.

This distro had a hard enough time getting accepted before with its' take on OSS. Now....well, let's just say something about a 10 foot pole comes to mind.

"Click 'n Run" seems to have become just as much a philosophy to these guys as it is an installation tool. I hope it was worth it Mr Carmony...actually, no I don't.

I can understand KC not coming over to OSNews because he doesn't want to take his bumps like a man. What I think is far more telling is that, not too long ago, whenever a negative Linspire story was posted KC and a whole group of minions would show up over here to bad mouth and mod down anyone remotely anti-Linspire. It seems even the most faithful of rats are abandoning ship.
