CEO dispels Linspire myths
Guest writes "Linspire CEO Kevin Carmony admitted to DesktopLinux.com's Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols that Linspire is "something of a black sheep in Linux distributions." That's because Linspire's goals aren't the same as other Linux desktop distributions. The company's sole focus is on a "consumer-friendly Linux that your grandma, sister, or brother can use." Carmony also contends that Linspire is misunderstood by a large number of Linux users. People think "Linspire lets you run Windows applications, that you have to run it as root, and that it's really not quite a proper Linux. Wrong, wrong, and wrong.""
