I used to wish Linspire well

The original idea behind Linspire seemed reasonable to me. I thought there was a legitimate niche for it. I'd even have recommended it. But:


the ability to play Windows Media files, and the ability to open and save documents in Microsoft's OpenXML format.


Clue to Carmony: Don't be evil if you want people to support your product. Helping Microsoft to pass off its obfuscated, proprietary file formats as "standards" counts as evil in my book.
