    Technically they can't sell linux (they can only distrubute it for a small fee). What they offer is the ability to download from their website all the packages you want to install. So really all they are doing is charging you to download from their site instead of going somewhere and getting it for free. The way I see is if somone is dumb enough to pay them the money they hey let them take it. Lindows has to make money some how right. But their economic model won't be able to last to support their business (as soon as people get wind that its free elsewere.) :P

    might as well just run winex or setup wine yourself.
