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."

Lisnpire claims EVERYONE get security updates and they do just not from Lisnpire. If you are paid for the OS and did not pay for CNR and there is a flaw in package XYZ then you do not get a fix from linspire you are told you have to get the update in a non-supported way. So the OS you paid for last week, now has a isntall security fix in a non-supported way and if you contact support about some other problem they will just tell you that you broke your install by using a non-supported software install...
