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."

Show me a perfect CNR then I will gladly concede that it is better than any alternative, especially the free package managers.

You keep saying it is better. That is is worth the cost. That it is the service that makes Linspire special. Tell us about this last CNR upgrade and how it went... No need to tell us, we can all head over to the forums and see for ourselves. Oh yea, go ahead and tell us how it was fixed and all you had to do was remove, download, install update etc... Wait how does that make it BETTER? What because they FIXED it, that makes it better especially considering that you have to pay for this?

Nothing is perfect, neither CNR, Synaptic or whatever floats your bowl. Use what fits your bill, makes you happy or whatever other category. No one has called you a Troll, but you should not critizise someones choice of Distro because YOU don't like it! That's your choice and you made it. Again nothing is perfect...that's the key word! I'm done! Peace and out!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;)
