Hey all, I just read about Ubuntu and Linspire teaming up. Based on anyone
expertise or experience, would someone be able to comment on this and say if
this is a good/bad thing???

================
Canonical Ltd., the sponsor of Ubuntu, and Linspire Inc. the developer of
Linspire and Freespire, on February 8 announced a
technology<http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,1697,2092672,00.asp#>partnership
to integrate with each other's Linux distributions.

Linspire/Freespire will be based on Ubuntu, rather than Debian, and Ubuntu
will integrate with Linspire's CNR package installer/updater.
Starting with Ubuntu's 7.04 release in April, Ubuntu users will gain access
to Linspire's newly opened CNR (Click and Run) e-commerce and software
delivery system. For Linspire, that will mean moving from Debian to Ubuntu
as the base for its Linspire and Freespire desktop operating
systems<http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,1697,2092672,00.asp#>
.
