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."

did you read my post before you replied ?

I said; "The advantages are that packages in the click and run repositories are fully tested and will not destroy your system.

The emphasis on FULLY TESTED. This is what you are paying for.. A Guarantee that the software in the C'n'R repositories will not bork your system.

Ubuntu, has not, and will not have this guarantee. Ever.
