its a linux OS, minus the flexability and choise.
software is installed via a click and run interface (which you subscribe to for an anuall fee)
one critisism in linux is that there is too much choise... that too much choise confuses people who do not understand the question or options...
linspire solvs this by removng much of your choise... in default install, you dont even get a compiler to compile your own software.
linspire is just as stable as the average linux distro, but to many linux users.. its not a "Real" linux distro.
watch the flash animations on linspires dite for demo's.
ohh, and just like all linux distro's, it does have a limited ability to run windows software, though the wine / wineX / transgaming / whatever win32 compatability layers.
