Linspire uses a package repository called the CNR Warehouse (Click 'n Run). Subscription to the standard service is free. There is a little green button with a running man on it located either on your kicker panel or the desktop (depending on the version you are using) that will launch the application to add packages and connect you to the CNR Warehouse (or allow you to sign up). The search feature in the application will let you see what they have.

Thank you for the answer.

Unfortunately, I don't use Linspire to see it for myself. As a part of my work, I wanted to see if the package names in Linspire are the same as that of Debian.

Ah. As I remember, they may use the same names, but I would not depend on it. There used to be a regular web access version (which a person could log into using a regular browser) located here http://www.cnr.com/, but it seems to be down at the moment. Perhaps they are updating it to support their new release (Linspire 6.0).

Find Software
http://cnrweb.cnr.com/productGrid.seam

Works, from what I can tell the cnr.com is being updated to work with Ubuntu, Debian , Fedora etc.

Other than some of the commercial programs, pretty much anything that is cnr can be found in the normal Debian repos. Although CNR seems to have almost twice the amount of packages that Debian has, according to the cnr page there are over 34k packages, using Debian Sid and a couple other repos I only have 23k when I open synaptic.
