    2-0 out of 5 stars Be Careful About the "Full Functionality" Hype
    I'm a PhD student who needs Linux to access my advisor's on-campus cluster.I have a 3-yr-old Dell Dimension 4550 that has had trouble getting Linux to power all its drivers, particularly the media components.I've tried SUSE, Mandrake, and Fedora Core 3, each of which couldn't get my Soundblaster Live audio card to run along with some other media hardware.

    So when I read the reviews for Linspire 5.0, including the ones here at Amazon, I was quite pleased at the prospect of full functionality right out of the box.So I plopped down my $85 and Linspire 5.0 arrived in the mail two weeks later.But, boy, I was only in for more disappointment, a lot more in fact than the other Linux distributions I've tried.

    Linspire originally claimed their 5.0 could run SB Live audio cards, but that wasn't true.(They've since updated their claims on their website.)It turns out that 5.0 has just as much trouble getting SB Live to work as any other Linux distribution.My computer is still soundless, even after downloading all the updates from CNR's website and having Linspire redetect my hardware (and do its diagnostics on top of that).

    But not only that, the Macromedia Flash player that came with the Linspire installation is incredibly glitchy.This really wouldn't be a problem if it weren't for the fact that, for some reason, Linspire 5.0 always wants to boot its Flash-powered tutorial program every time I turn on my computer and log in.Before I ever get to see the desktop, the tutorial kicks in -- and then promptly freezes itself.Sometimes I can get it to turn off and go to the desktop, but most of the time it just sits there frozen no matter what I do.The only way out is to force my computer to hard crash by literally unplugging it.(This is quite remarkable to see happen for a Linux OS.)And there's no apparent way to turn off the tutorial to keep it from starting up every time I boot my machine.It's quite aggravating.Also, I've noticed that (when I can get past the silly tutorial) that Mozilla Firefox freezes up whenever I visit a website using Macromedia Flash.When this occurs, I have to kill the browser's window and restart Mozilla.

    Likewise, no media players work.Try to watch a Windows Media or Quicktime file off the web, and you get a blank screen.Put in a audio CD and no player will run it.(Even if the sound card doesn't work, the software player should still do something with a CD.)Put in a DVD and the computer quite literally has no idea what to do with it except show the DVD contents on a separate window.

    Basically, I'm no better off than when I was using the free distribution of Fedora Core 3.So I strongly recommend that you take the hype with a grain of salt and research for yourself whether or not Linspire 5.0 is good for your machine.

    But I try to look on the bright side.Maybe CNR will use my $85 to get their Linspire 5.0 to work some day. (-:

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great bundle: OS + lots of software
    Linspire is a great operating system, easy to use, yet powerful enough for all of your needs.And with the CNR subscription, you will have a one-click access to many programs.It can't get any easier than this.I've been using Linspire full time since January and I am sure there is no way I will ever go back to Windows.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Computering the way it was meant to be.
    This is a great Operating System.Linspire makes using a computer fun and enjoyable.With a Linux based system, you can surf the web and use email without fear of getting a virus or having to deal with spyware.Lsongs is perfect for listening to your mp3 collection.Lphoto manages your photo's.Linspire's CNR opens the door to more programs than you will know what to do with with a easy one-click installation.The tutorials are simple and concise.The support from Linspire is excellent.The on-line support of the forums is invaluable.

    I have been VERY happy with my Linspire Five-0 system.It is worth every penny!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Linspire rocks
    I am not sure anymore why I started looking at Linux years ago. OK, I had my problems with Windows like every one else that had to walk on there toes to keep it running clean form all the known "dangers" but did had a lot of fun in between ...
    My curiosity probably was the main reason to try Linux although I feel very much for the "freedom" policy behind Linux or as some say GNU/Linux.
    I had more problems then ever anticipated! It was hard to understand Linux, to cope with dependencies, permissions and to install "simple" things like drivers wasn't that easy for a beginner as well.
    Not giving up I tried several distro's (they ALL became better by the year btw!) until I ended up with then Lindows. That's where the fun started for me! What a ease.
    Since then I sticked with Linspire and ran all versions that followed. Version 4.5.603 was no less then a "rock" in terms of stability. Today's Five-O is just like that but has way more "eye-candy". Its also faster then its predecessor. Its a very modern Linux distro that comes with many latest apps. The "home breed" stuff like Linspire Internet Suite is not just a renamed Mozilla but more a "tailor cut" Mozilla, fine tuned for Linspire Five-O. Works simply great and is a beauty to look at.
    I love a lot of great programs available in Linspire's CNR but the absolute crown belongs with CNR itself. CNR makes Linspire standing out of the rest and the live of the users easy, very easy.
    My years long experience with Linspire has moreover proved that there's a massive effort to support any user, new or matured which I find very important. Then there's that very active, loaded with enthusiasts, user forum where first hand help is often around and simply brought on by more or less experienced users. Put your questions there and someone, in some cases even engineers or the CEO, will come up with a attempt to help. Nothing "Linux forum" comes close to this.
    In short, I am using Linspire "full time" and am very satisfied. I can recommend it to anyone, experienced or not.
    I will be there when the next great Linspire is released. For now this is the best and easiest one can get for the bucks involved.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Linspire The Operating System for Anyone

Functional in both the home and work environments. Give it a try and you'll be impressed... ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Linux users have needs, too. Desktop publishing is vital for many wholike to stay away from the more popular operating systems, and Chilliware givesthem that power with IceSculptor. This sleek, powerful package fits in with any Linux install and doesn't eat up too many system resources.

    Installation is comparatively simple, though a little guidance from thepublisher would have gone a long way for new users. The interface is asintuitive as any competitor running on any OS, which is essential as thedocumentation and online help are just adequate. The XML-based files can bemanipulated directly using a text editor or using a WYSIWYG window like mostother desktop publishing programs; this can be a tremendous boon for those whoare more interested in Web publishing, but probably won't appeal to mostusers.

    The image editor is cool and easy to use. While not as powerful as Photoshop, Illustrator, and their ilk, it is handy and perfect for resizing andreshaping without loading new software. Documents are scalable to any size, andtext is easy to customize with the ArtText feature. For those with high-endprinting needs, full color separation, and CMYK, printing is available andactually fairly simple. While IceSculptor is a giant leap forward in bringingLinux up to speed with Windows and Mac OS in terms of popular applications,novice users should beware or at least make sure they have a guardian geekwatching over the shoulder. --Rob Lightner ...
