Linspire 5.0 wasn't so hot either

In fact, it sucked rocks. The installer only created a root user and gave no options to create unprivileged users. It faithfully duplicated the worst of Windows- endless crapware and nagware, and all kinds of trial versions that appeared to be the full versions, but weren't. They kept hyping CNR like it was something special, but at that time the CNR repos were pretty bare, and contained mainly commercial software. What the heck is so special about CNR that Linspire keeps hyping it like it's something special?

Linspire is junk. Don't waste your money.
