Linspire Linspire has started another attempt at selling computers pre-installed with their operating system - this time by teaming up with Mirus - called the Koobox. Ars looks at the situation: "At this point it is hard to assess the potential of the Koobox systems. If it succeeds, the product could help legitimize desktop Linux and bring it further into the mainstream. Regardless of how many get sold, the availability of yet another budget Linux PC illuminates the growing popularity of the Linux platform, and contributes to the perception that Linux is applicable to desktop computing."

I think this is great! If it's gonna fail then let it fail, in the mean time I am happy that Linspire keeps stepping up!

The cool part is you KNOW for sure that any version of Linux will work on this machine. So if you get one out the box Ubuntu or Slackware or Suse should work just as well so you go with one of those.

As for Linspire I have some problems with them but that is for another post.
