[News] Linux Preinstallation is the Key Which Becomes a Reality

Desktop Linux Momentum Through Pre-installed PCs

,----[ Quote ]
| As momentum for desktop Linux builds, we're keeping pace by upgrading our
| Builder Program to reflect changes we made from two of our most recent
| announcements, the release of Freespire 1.0 and offering our
| revolutionary CNR service for free.


Companies selling preinstalled Linux and no-OS


Linspire seems to prosper and it has a millionaire behind it (not
Shuttleworth). Consider for example their recent move to a larger office and
hiring of Eric Raymond.

Review: Linspire Mini Koobox

,----[ Quote ]
| If you want a mini-PC form factor that's Linux-compatible, the Mini Koobox
| seems to be one of the best values on the market. It's small and quiet,
| and its performance is fine for normal desktop use.


Linspire frees "Click 'N Run" software service

,----[ Quote ]
| In a surprise move, Linspire is now offering its CNR ("Click 'N Run")
| software service at no charge to its Linspire and Freespire Linux
| distribution customers. In addition, the company will soon be
| open-sourcing the CNR Client.
| CNR, previously a fee-based service offered at annual subscription rates
| of $20 for basic and $50 for premium ("Gold") access to new programs, had
| been the San Diego-based company main source of income.
| Now, however, according to CEO Kevin Carmony, Linspire is doing well
| enough from selling its higher-end products and services that it can
| afford to offer its basic CNR service free of charge. Thus, both Linspire
| and Freespire users can use the extremely easy software delivery and
| update program for free.
