Would it be fesible to only offer the packages in CNR that aren't available in Universe?

It would make a good way for users to obtain 'paid-for' software, such as Cedega.

Hi all,

I have been reading about the Ubuntu / Linspire CNR deal and I have
some serious reservations about it.

Will CNR be part of a default desktop installation?

If yes, I will have to seriously consider abandoning Ubuntu.


Ubuntu - Linux for human beings and not Linux to confuse the crap out of folks
with more software installation methods than you can shake a stick at. Other
vendors have it right on this with many other software companies ... Here is the way

you do it - The one way. How can anything be for human beings when you
can get "I installed this via this and this via that and now I have an issue" - It
will cause so many problems for both users and add a large overhead to the


Simplicity, stability and consistency is paramount I feel for the basic and new user.

Forget people like us who are experienced in systems and IT generally
Wonderfully put.  Someone should take a note of this - it's so right. 

CNR maybe yes, but in MOTU as a user installable app and not in the core of the OS!
