I find this very interesting. I know I tried linspire and even joined their forums. I did not use it long because I found it really lacking in many aspects. I had a membership in the CNR and all that, I didn't stay with it long enough to even use the membership. The quality I found was not there.
Does this mean linspire will now be based on ubuntu? Does it mean they are doing away with the "run everything as root" silliness?
The main reason I use ubuntu is because it always has a well up to date gnome desktop. I really like the gnome desktop. does this mean Linspire is going to come with a default gnome desktop now, or that they may use kubuntu?
BTW, what do the purists in S Afrikka think of the bastardized form of "kubuntu?" Isn't this just one step toward complete dilution of its true meaning?
I had no idea Shuttleworth was such a hippie. Good on ya!
