does anyone here know much about linspire. io have thought installing it on my laptop. but at the same time i am trying to teach myself how to program(vb.net, and java). how would running linspire work with those languages. if i went to that should i start trying to learn unix?
it looks like it has a super user friendly gui, but does is still have the same reliability of the rest of the linux os's
thnx, john

Mandrake it's not free? Check again... They offer for free a version that's only 3 CD's, vs. the commercial one, 6 CDs.

Here's what I'd recommend:

Download their Community Release version and run it for a while. If you like it, buy their boxed set, or donate some money. If it's really valuable to you, you should plonk down some cash for their effort.

Personally, I've done just that-- I LOVE FreeBSD, so I've purchased the FreeBSD Power Pack, and I'm regularly picking up schwag from freebsdmall.com, where some of the proceeds go to the FreeBSD Project.
