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."

It's all about stability. If you want the latest and greatest then Linspire is not for you. Neither is Debian Stable, just check and see how far it's behind Linspire! Linspire does a good job keeping apps up to date but they are not the latest and greatest out there.
