Linspire Sweetens The Pot For System Builders

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux upstart and vehement Microsoft competitor Linspire,
| San Diego, is looking to shift the desktop market further
| into the Linux zone. Fueled by a new partner program
| and incentives for system builders, Linspire's
| objective is clear--ushering the Linspire OS into the
| market via the custom-system channel.


Users rarely choose their operating system. IIRC, in 80% of all
purchases, it's the hardware vendor that makes the selection.

| My pharmacist got a Linux box this week.
| He didn't choose to run Linux. His Value Added Reseller (VAR)
| did. The new system connects with the same online resources
| as the old one, it has nifty black flat screen monitors, and
| the printer output looks better to patients.
| This is where desktop Linux is right now. It's in the hands
| of VARs, developers, integrators and vertical market
| specialists. Folks with specific industry knowledge
| connect specific customers to specific resources
| seamlessly, add their own proprietary tweaks, and
| sell the results on to small offices and small businesses.
