I tried Lindows now Linspire, version 4 and 4.5.
When coping an Open Office 1.x file from Windows to Linspire,
using a fat32 partition to xfer the files, Linspire would UNZIP the
files. It was a complete blow up.
Then I got their VoIP router, which was not very expensive,
to use with my cable modem for a phone system
I plugged it in and it did not work.
Their tech guys could not fix it.
After 8 hours of playing with it,
I threw it away.
I will never buy from Linspire again.
I am now on Vonage with a free Linksys router,
and PCLinuxOS and SuSE and Ubuntu.
Vonage worked out of the box.
