    Linspire and Micro Center Announce Expanded Desktop Linux Offerings

    Linspire, Inc. and Micro Center today announced that the two companies have formed a broad-based partnership to meet the rising demand for desktop Linux among mainstream computer users. Beginning today, all 20 Micro Center stores nationwide will sell Linspire's Linux-based operating system in both the boxed version and pre-installed on desktop and laptop personal computers.

    The partnership follows recent market research reports that predict revenues from desktop Linux PCs will grow to $10 billion by 2008. In addition, internal surveys by Micro Center reveal that more than 75 percent of its customers have an interest in running a Linux-based operating system.

    Hell yeah!

    Linspire seems to be finally taking off. I'd really like to see more Sun & Linspire setups at the local PC shops. Sun's linux is pretty nice too.
