Re: Linspire Myths
Linspire is actually one of the first distributions I tried. I got it for free, because I found one of their "Coupon Codes" that they give out to anyone from time to time, that lets you download the standard version for free. Tried both 4.5 and 5.0.
I'd like to try the latest, just gotta get around to downloading it' It'll take forever to download though.
There's one of those myths that you listed that I believed at the time. That'd the CNR thingy. As I had just started with linux, I had almost no idea what I was doing, and Didn't know about apt-get, synaptic, adept, etc.
I noticed their Freespire, recently too. I think that started out as a seperate dist that wasn't endorced by them, but I believe they're okay with it now.
